About the Piece:
“Three-Nine Line” is an aviator’s slang for the invisible line that runs from one wing to the other of a plane. Each of the four movements reflect an aspect of flying. The first movement, “Flathatting”, is the daredevil stunt of flying low and fast to the ground. The second and slow movement is “Deadstick”. Deadstick is when the plane loses power and the plane is left to glide through the air. The third movement called “Trim” is somewhat of a minuet. In aviation, it’s used to relieve pressure and keep the nose of the plane in position. The final and fastest movement of the sonata is “Jink”. Jink is another aviation slang term used by aviators to describe quick and sometimes violent maneuvering used by pilots to escape a threat. Please put your chairs and tables in the upright position and enjoy the ride!

Extended Techniques:
Pizzicato – Finger the pitch indicated by the notation. Use a hard “Do” or “Tu” articulation to produce a percussive effect similar to what you may hear strings produce when plucking strings.
Jet Whistle – Finger the pitch indicated in the notation. Cover the embouchure hole completely with the lips. Blow using an extreme force of air.
Boo, Ch, Ka, Ts & Za – In a “beat boxing” style, use these syllables as articulation for the pitch indicated in the notation. This will not produce a full tone, but more of a breathy percussive effect.
Arrow bending down – Bend pitch down a quarter tone by playing flat or bending the pitch by rolling in headjoint.
^ – Bend pitch up then down a quarter tone by playing flat or bending the pitch by rolling in headjoint.
