Summary
"Those techniques, used through the work from start to finish, are multiphonics (or multiple stops), which suggest chordal textures; 'whistle tones', as Hellermann calls them in the score (Dick prefers the more poetic 'whisper tones'), which create eerily high-flying lines of counterpoint over the more standard flute tone; and abdominal tremolo, a form of energetic, sharply rhythmic breathing that produces a stream of short bursts. And the flutist executes all of this while circular breathing, a technique that gives the piece its non-stop seamlessness"--Insert, page 2.
