59 Winds for Flute or Bass Flute and Electronics Sounds
- Editor's Choice
“A chance to shine in contemporary music!”
Quite often the realm of contemporary techniques coupled with eletronic backing can seem utterly out of reach to all but the really committed. Here is a piece that might change that. The most important aspect here is that it is easy to follow the score with the sound track. Secondly the flute techniques are pretty standard and very clearly explained in the performance notes. the bass flute really adds an extra dimension here. The result is a piece that is very atmospheric yet relatively straightforward to put together. Perfect for a first attempt at this genre.
