Pas de Deux was written for the 2017 Charlotte New Music Festival and one of the guest ensembles, Duo Zonda (Orlando Cela and Wei Zhao). The idea of the piece is to mimic a pas de deux (dance for two) of a ballet down to the form of the piece. The two flutes dance around and with each other in close ranges, imitating each other's moves and dancing around the soundscape through multiple combinations of extended techniques and extended harmony.
