A flying saucer (2 tenors) lands on Earth, a space alien (sopranino) emerges, looks around, offers a few remarks, but quickly departs.

The piece should be performed in a very lively acoustic. Portions marked "lointain" ("distant") should be played from, or near, off stage if possible. A bold wavy line indicates a slow, heavy vibrato, a lighter one, a faster, less intense vibrato. Slide fingers off tone holes to achieve the glissandi. Duration: 1:30

The accompanying multitrack recording features the composer playing sopranino and tenor II, with Scott Paterson, tenor I.
