Luciform is part 4 of the “Mansion Cycle” (2009-2011), and the third work in “Cosmology”, an ongoing series of works for solo performer and electronics.
Luciform is a concerto for flute and electronic music.
Latin lux, lucis (light) + form, "light-form"
Lucifer "light-bearer", "the morning star"
Seeking illumination through transgression of boundaries.
Luciform is a journey inward, a movement through a series of vision states. A difficult path, a rite of passage, hovering between diabolical intensity and lucid wakefulness.
