Lamington Plateau : flute solo
by Hollis Taylor (2008)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
The one-movement work is closely based on a field transcription of pied butcherbird song, with inter-phrase intervals reduced and some motives deleted. The pied butcherbird from Lamington Plateau is joined near the end of the transcription by a crimson rosella, which delivers its bell-like motives an octave higher than normal pied butcherbird range. I give both parts to the flute, having him interrupt himself as it were.
The work involves some improvisation and is dedicated to Australian improvising flutist Jim Denley.
