“An extra dimension”
This interesting piece won an Honourable Mention at this year's NFA and it will certainly add an extra dimension to any recital programme for this popular combination. The extended techniques used are unexpected in this context and so the beatbox style has an immediate impact on the audience. There are obvious rhythmic and technical demands made of the players but they are within the realms of possiblity. This is definitely one to try if you're feeling adventurous!
