New York, NY – Carl Fischer Music announces the release of Flock (WE19 - $26.99), a new piece written and performed by urban pop duo Flutronix.
Flock is written for a quintet of four flutes and alto flute and was inspired by minimalist composer Steve Reich’s Vermont Counterpoint. The flutes in the piece are said to represent the flight pattern of a flurry of birds, and the multiple lines create an energy that evokes both the classical and pop genres. Flock is featured on the duo’s highly anticipated EP City of Breath, which was released on Aug. 13 at the National Flute Association Convention in Washington (available on iTunes and Amazon).
“A whirlwind of simulsynched cosmic mass birdflight…”
-- Mark S. Tucker, Folk & Music Exchange
“‘Flock’ is an instrumental workout that (to me) shows off the sheer skill of these two flautists.”
-- Rob Ross, Popdose
“…the flutes combine into almost dance-like motifs, with the lower-range parts creating a defined rhythmic base for the higher-register ones to build upon…”
-- Andy Armageddon, BandJack
Flock is now available through Carl Fischer Music or your favorite music retailer.
