FLOW

Solo saxophone


Performance Notes: "Flow" is from the Transformative States cycle for various combinations of wind instruments by Kirsten Soriano Broberg. The gestures and contours in the piece flow at first like air, with the saxophonist playing with mostly air and without pitch. This timbre slowly shifts to half air and half pitch and then finally to pitch, representing a liquid state of flowing like water. The piece is written unmetered and without a specific tempo in mind, allowing for extreme amounts of liberty to be taken with tempo and rubato. The entire state of the piece should sound highly organic and natural. There are four tempi referred to in the piece (tempi I-IV). These tempi range from moderately fast (to be interpreted at the player's discretion) to as fast as possible (as fast as the player is able to perform these passages). This work is fairly relentless for the performer, without rests or natural breaks indicated in the score, to suggest specific moments to breathe. Where to create moments of repose to breathe are also left up to the performer, as long as no slurs or ties are broken. "Flow," when performed on alto saxophone, may be immediately followed without interruption by any version of "Cloud-Like" by Kirsten Soriano Broberg (two alto saxophones, alto flute and alto saxophone or flute in C and alto saxophone). —Kirsten Soriano Broberg, 2018 The notations for the various timbral states are as follows:

open diamond noteheads = air only; no pitch. Produce and airy/windy sound through the instrument. Very little pitch should be present. This timbral state in the piece represents wind.

solid diamond noteheads = half air/half pitch. Produce a timbre that contains roughly half air and half pitch or tone that represents a combination of air and water (think of a babbling brook with currents of air seeping into the water).

normal noteheads = normal pitch. Produce an ordinary timbre with pitch present. Parts of the pitch that contain this timbre represent a state of water only, like a coursing river.


for Jeffery Kyle Hutchins
