Memento for Kathryn (and being able to hold that forever)

For flute and pre-recorded audio. Written for and with Kathryn Williams as part of her 'Coming Up for Air' project. Memento for Kathryn is a piece of art-ethnography, documenting Kathryn’s lived experiences and relationship to a familiar flute solo. In the giving of a souvenir - a token of excess, home-making and failure - I hope to cultivate a space in which Kathryn might tell her story of struggle, recovery and growth.
