Sheet Music: Score
XXXX : for voice and flute / by Stephen Cronin.
by Stephen Cronin (1993)
Inspired by Peeling, a short story from Peter Carey's Exotic Pleasures, XXXX is a short virtuosic and theatrical piece written for Kathleen Gallagher and Andrew Ford. Both the flute and voice parts make extensive use of extended performance techniques. The flute 'noises' are an attempt to convey the underlying nervous tension of Carey's Peeling while the voice reflects other elements of the story. XXXX is not programmatic but the structure relies on a fairly conventional tension-release model.
