A Simple Process is a chamber ensemble work for Pierrot ensemble. Written in a fairly minimalistic style, the work combines simple and delicate melodic figures with rhythmically intriguing, yet understated ostinato figures. The flute, clarinet, and cello share most of the primary melodic voice throughout the piece, both individually and in various combinations. Set entirely in 3/4 time, the work winds through several key signatures, rhythmic feels, and moods, before returning to the opening melodic material, but now intertwining a few highlights retained from other portions of the piece.

flows with beautiful and calm unpretentious melodies and soundscapes. – Michèle Gingras
