Sequenza for solo flute was composed by Italian composer Luciano Berio in 1958. This incredibly dynamic and complex piece is notated graphically, with rhythms indicated by their spacing across the page and in relation to each other, instead of traditional western rhythmic notation . By using this nontraditional notation, the composer invited spontaneity and improvisation in how to perform the piece, allowing for a wide range of interpretations, from performance to performance. I have found this piece to be an interesting bridge between my classical practice and improvisatory practice as a flutist.
