The movements may be performed as a suite, or selected as individual pieces. They will provide also a broad specturm of etude material for use in the developmental study of contemporary techniques for this instrument. Ornamentation of Native flute performance, such as quickly executed grace notes, either preceding or following a principal note of the phrase, as well as pitch-glides are applied elaborately. As traditional sounds these share a compatability with the contemporary compositional style.
