Chains and Transparency (2001) by Mika Pelo
for flute, violin, cello, and piano

Chains and Transparency consists of two parts: Chains, where melodical fragments are combined in a chain-like fashion, and Transparency, where the musical material is seen as through an opaque filter. This music was written after a long time of studying extremely complex music. I wanted this music to be easy, out-going and fun to play as well as fun to listen to. This piece was originally written for the Swedish ensemble "The pearls before swine experience" in 1998.
