Sweet Soulless Solstice (1975) for solo flute was written for the extraordinary flutist, Jan Pompilo. The composition utilizes a number of expressive techniques, including multiphonics, and while written with rhythmic preciseness, is meant to flow freely throughout. Among Pompilo's many gifts as a flutist was her ability to invest a passion that breathed emotional life into every note she performed, Sweet Soulless Solstice seeing its inception under her close watch.
