T R Ks by Ian Clarke
For Flute and CD
Publisher: Just Flutes
Instrumentation: Flute


An individual and dramatic piece….sort of, but not, Pink Floyd for flute. A studio track that can be played live with the CD. The track features processed flutes, guitars, samples and drums. The music comes with a CD performance backing track as well a full version. It uses some extended techniques. Pre-publication performances cross three continents.

Unlike many of my other works this title doesn't illuminate and contains no significant meaning beyond leaving a space to which the listener/performer can bring there own thoughts. The markings in the music itself carry more significance. Other than that, there isn't a conscious programmatic, literary or other external element. The title was selected by Simon & Ian in the studio to label the file. This was early on in the composition process when I was fiddling around with flicks using trill keys hence ‘T R K s’ was a vague reference to trill keys and not tracks!
