about

5.4.88 for amplified solo flute was commissioned by the Canadian mathematician Henry Crapo for world-renown French flutist Pierre-Yves Artaud. The piece is in one movement. Its five sections alternate between those of a meditative character with those of a more agitated scherzo-like character. The contemporary flute techniques (mostly of a delicate nature) heard in this piece are: souffle (in which the flutist incorporates equal amounts of breath with pitch), pizzicati, key clicks, tongue-rams, and a combined sound consisting of souffle and whistle-tone harmonics in equal balance. These five techniques provide the source material from which the piece emanates.
