“Articulation and Rhythmic Workout ”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

Mechanical is an articulation and rhythmic workout for 3 advanced players. True to its title and in a minimalist style, it grabs the attention during its powerful 2 minutes duration. If you're lucky enough to have the unusual instrumentaion you're in for a treat!

From the Publisher

Mechanical was written in 2008 for rarescale, who first performed the work in December the same year. Based on an earlier movement for violin and cello duo and lasting a little under 2 minutes, it is characterised by a motoric, repeating note figure (which provides ample challenges in articulation for the players), around which dance barely-glimpsed motivic fragments, before the music comes to a sudden, arbitrary halt.

Mechanical was premiered by rarescale on 13 December 2008 at Shoreditch Church, London

Performance duration (approx): 2'30

Difficulty guide: 8-9
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is total beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
