Somniloquy is a piece for flute and electronics that gets its title from a fancy word for sleeptalking. The flute plays the part of the sleeper, with subdued unconscious mumblings eventually giving way to more loquacious and labyrinthine figures. The sleeper goes through many stages, exploring both complex, breathy sounds and pure, unfiltered tones. In the electronics, a chorus of unstable noises bubbles up to the surface, beyond the control of the sleeper.
