We ARE Determined for Bass Flute, Narrator and Drone by Nathan James Dearden

Published by Tetractys Publishing
Duration: 8 minutes
Playing score

For Carla Rees ….  after Ethel Smythe

Winner in the Low Flutes category of the NFA 2019 Newly Published Music Competition

Program Note:
Incorporating excerpts from Emily Wilding Davison’s diary during her incarceration at Holloway Prison (London, UK) in 1912, this work acts as a musical postcard from a single moment of one’s immoral persecution and a time of collective empowerment.

Performer Notes:
In both parts (bass flute and narrator) consists a considerable amount of vocalising/singing (especially in regard to the former). It is not required that each performer has an advanced aptitude to sing, however please note that the b. fl. requires a substantial amount of singing whilst playing the instrument.
The narrator should be dressed in all white attire. The spoken word should be kept as placid and organic as possible. Do not act.
Bass Flute requires a B-extension (Kingma system).
Multiphonics and singing/playing techniques are outlined throughout the score. Further extended techniques include air sounds and tongue ram.
Drone can be produced by a string instrument (preferred; played flautando, sul pont. thoughout the work). Alternatively, the drone can be produced via electronic or synthesized means. This is dependent on the specific needs of a performance and is left to the discretion of the performers. The drone must be performed/produced from out-of-sight of the audience and/or away from the bass flute and narrator.
