Loops composed by Brandy Hudelson
Written for 4 flutes
Includes score and parts
Duration. 11 minutes
My inspiration to write Loops came from a desire to expand the complexity of, and possibilities within, the beatbox genre of flute chamber music, beyond what is achieveable in an improvisational setting. At its roots, beatboxing is an improvisational art; however, as in jazz, structure is required in order to perform with larger ensembles. While there are no improvisational elements in these quartets, they may serve as a departure point for flutists who wish to improvise and compose with other beatboxers and musicians.
