From the Publisher
"An entertaining extended technique showpiece that sounds like its title! Subtitled ‘The Flute As You Don’t Usually Hear It!’ it has proved extremely popular with audiences. Techniques include; residual/breathy fast tonguing, multiphonics, singing & playing, lip bending, explosive harmonics and an optional circular breathing section. A forward with explanations of the techniques is given along with fingerings in the score for easy reference. The multiphonics used are of the more friendly variety; seven from only four different fingerings." - Ian Clarke
