A very unique piece which was premiered at the 2013 NFA Convention in New Orleans. From the program notes:

“The piece is based on a short melodic riff written by Mrs. Stacey Steele [Associate Professor of Flute and Music Education at Slippery Rock University (Slippery Rock, PA)] after visiting a factory in Germany in 2007. Upon seeing the coordination and rhythmic movements of the automated machinery in the factory, she had an idea for a piece where the players would perform choreographed motions emulating the factory machinery while they played.”
