Her Pockets Full Of Inertia : for low flute choir and AM radios / Cat Hope.
by Cat Hope (2017)
Her Pockets full of Inertia is written for solo flute and flute choir. The flute choir is separated into into three groups, with some performers using a handheld a.m. radio. A fourth part is for sub contra flute (which can be substituted with a very low keyboard).
There is also a pre-recorded flute choir in the score if a soloist would like to play it alone.
The piece is named after a poem by Melbourne poet Claire Gaskin, and some of the words from it feature in the score to share a little of the poem with the players whilst they play. The work treats the poem as an inspiration for a sonic world, creating an eerie atmosphere of stasis and clouded sounds. The solo part provides a more literal use of the poem with some words even spoken through the flute, and draws thematic material from the choir parts.
The original flute choir version of the work was commissioned by Lamorna Nightingale for the NOW Flute ensemble and premiered at the Australian Flute Festival, Canberra, 4 October 2015. The solo flute version was created in 2017 and premiered at the Tilde Festival in 2019.
