L'Écoulement (Flow) is a one-movement work for orchestra based upon a three-note idée fixe which expands, grows, and develops over the course of the piece. As the title suggests, this work presents a continuous flow of motivic development and transformations of harmony, color, and orchestration. Though written and intended to be played by full orchestra, L'Écoulement combines orchestrational techniques for both chamber and larger ensembles, flowing between fuller and thinner textures. The three-note motive is presented first in the strings and vibraphone then it proceeds to grow and develop through instrumental solos and contrapuntal textures. After presented in its full form, the motive is deconstructed, leaving only fragments as the piece draws to a close. The duration of L'Écoulement is approximately 8 minutes.
