“Have a go!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
This atmospheric piece explores a soundscape that is really ethereal. The flute part itself is not technically difficult to play and so the challange is to be flexible enough in tonal inflection to be able to blend in the with pre-recorded track and deliver the appropriate texture. The long meandering phrases are accessible to less experienced lower flute players and are lovely to play. This is a great piece to get started on as a first venture into this genre - take a risk and have a go!

From the Publisher

Based on an Armenian troubadour song, I WILL NOT BE SAD IN THIS WORLD is a uniquely beautiful work for alto flute (or bass flute) accompanied by a pre-recorded audio track made purely from the composer’s own singing. The result is a fluid interplay between the live flute and the composer’s multi-tracked and processed vocal sonorities. The work was created for Marya Martin’s “Eight Visions” collection (published by Presser), and is now available as a single publication
