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. - K. Hoover.
Get Up is a be-bop tune with four short courses.
Thirds contains a certain kind of disjunct, fast writing that flutists have seen ad nauseum the past twenty years.
Short Circuit 'Minimalis Interruptus' is a rather personal look at minimalism.
Invention whose form is that of the Bach Inventions, exploits the swift double-tongue possible on the flute, from its low register bee-buzzing sound to the brilliant notes.
Johnny Two-Note is written entirely on D and A-flat, using varied colors, dynamics, ranges, and other effects.
In Flight explores the sweeping and darting of flight using virtuosic runs, trills, tremolos, and harmonics.
