TICK-TACK - A clock is not merely a measuring instrument, which 
indicates a precise moment in time or measures a certain lapse of 
time. A clock can also be an inspiration for a piece of music and 
thus the regular ticking of a clock is at the centre of this work for 
three flutes. The idea came to the composer while listening to the 
beat of an old clockwork mechanism. Its regular beat is represen- 
ted by an insistent 8th note movement running on incessantly in 
all three flutes. Level of difficulty: difficult
