Raga Sept 'Single'
Composed by Derek Charke
for Flute Quartet
Published by Canadian Music Centre
Includes score and parts

Instrumentation:
2 Flutes
1 Alto Flute
1 Bass Flute

Notes:
      Raga Sept is not based on an authentic Raga, but rather attempts to emulate the sound world through the use of various extended flute techniques. Raga Sept is in 7/8 time. Many sounds are created with a technique whereby the flutist must enunciate the word 'cha' to produce the desired 'toneless' and rough sounding effect. Most of my works in this Raga Series use Hindi numbers to designate the time signature. 'Saat' is the English translation of the number seven in Hindi. However, that name was used for another Raga quartet. Instead, this work uses the French 'Sept'. There are two versions of Raga Sept: (1) Single, for flute quartet (2 C flutes, Alto, and Bass), and (2) Double, for two quartets (4 C Flutes, 2 Alto, 2 Bass).

Notation:
      A triangle note-head indicates a “toneless” attack. Blow across the tone-hole (not into the tone-hole as you normally would) while producing a harsh “CHA” sound.
      A square note-head indicates a note to be sung.
