Two Flies

Inspired by Bukowski's poem (2 Flies), Two Flies summarizes the poet's annoyance at these two "angry bits of life" that will not let him read his newspaper, an internal dialogue that culminates in an existential crisis. The irony of a naive, buzzing, lively choir of flies in contrast to the pessimistic, tired and lonely poet is expressed by explosive extended techniques in the realm of fast rhythms, dissonant counterpoint and extreme dynamic envelopes, interacting with the lost, angry or contemplative voice of the poet, as the scene unfolds.
