Peter Ablinger:
(1989-91), 18', 3fl

18 pieces, each 1 minute, for 3 differently tempered flutes. Flutes 2 and 3 are physically extended (by an extension piece between the mouthpiece and the body of the flute). Only the non-extended first flute still divides the octave into 12 semi-tones. Flute 2 divides the octave into 13, and flute 3 into 15 equidistant intervals. The score and extension-pieces are available from the publisher.

Two pairs of flute extension pieces in different views. The shorter piece is for the 13-tone flute, the longer one for the 15-tone flute. The pair on top are for more narrowly constructed flutes.
