'the legendary story of a slug and a beetle' by joão pedro viegas and paulo chagas is a playful series of duo style 'improvised miniatures' for woodwind instruments, such as clarinets (of various sizes), oboes and flutes. the songs have a pervasive sense of whimsy, as is suggested by the title. they feel like brief flights of fancy. the release notes at pan y rosas discos liken the pieces to haikus...i am a big fan of haikus and i think understand the comparison. these brief, airy transportations can show you different colors each time you look at them.
