Hoover, K

Katherine Hoover presents Sound Bytes, a collection of small works for two flutes.

From the composer:

'Sound Bytes is a group of six light pieces for two flutes. Some of the movements explore sounds and colors particularly effective on the instrument, while others poke fun at contemporary cliches.

I - Get Up is a be-bop tune with four short choruses.

II - Thirds contains a certain kind of disjunct, fast writing that flutists have seen ad nauseum the past twenty years.

III - Short Circuit, or 'Minimalis Interruptus' is a rather personal look at minimalism.

IV - Invention, whose form is that of a Bach Invention, exploits the swift double-tongue possible on the flute, from its low register bee-buzzing sound to the brilliant top notes.

V - Johnny Two-Note is written entirely on D and A flat, using varied colors, dynamics, ranges, and other effects.

VI - In Flight explores the sweeping and darting of flight, using virtuosic runs, trills, tremolos, and harmonics.'
