This is a short flute and electronic piece written for the Talea Ensembles visit to Stanford University in May 2012. The idea for the pieces is unusually singularly-narrative, not something I normally do in instrumental music. I went through a month or two thinking about how call centers and automated phone lines are both excruciatingly annoying and well (and by well I mean evil!) designed. They turn back on us, led us astray, distort or comments, ware us out….etc….etc….. we’ve all been there!
