Description

Fluff, for solo flute, is just that.

Program Notes

Fluff, for solo flute, was written for the brilliant flutist Stefán Höskuldsson in the final days of 2003 for a Vox Novus concert the following February, and premiered in New York's East Village. The brief piece begins with the dotted rhythm and wide intervallic leaps that demonstrate the dexterity of the instrument in all registers. These dotted rhythms are developed in a slower, more meditative section; tempo then increases and the flute finds itself in a swiftly moving 7/16 meter leading to a light and exuberant conclusion. Fluff is just that.
