for solo alto flute
This piece is for Pan. Some people know Pan as the Greek god who played flute. Other people know Pan as the Green Man, the Horned God, the Divine Masculine, the trickster. Some people call him the Devil. Pan has been pushed underground for 2,000 years. He is unled because ever the trickster, he will not abide by restrictive structures. He is an archetype because he is as pervasive as he is mysterious. His image profaned, Pan still lives. He wakens, without weeping for the world, with a belief in the horizon's new colors.
Thanks to Celeste Landy for the beautiful performance.
