The Glissando Headjoint is is a sliding, telescoping tube that extends the overall length of the flute to create a glissando to and from every note. The Glissando Flute is a C flute played with a Glissando Headjoint.
This headjoint offers access to an entirely new sonic vocabulary of glissandi, bends, multiphonics, timbres, microtones, and scales, which dramatically increases the expressive potential available to flutists and composers.
THE GLISSANDO FLUTE is an 80-page handbook for composers who wish to explore new possibilities, performers who have a Glissando Headjoint and are ready to get started, and anyone curious about new music.
In this book, you will find:
- an introduction by Robert Dick, creator of the Glissando Headjoint
- a history of pitch bending and the Glissando Headjoint
- complete fingering diagrams
- repertoire lists
- Melissa Keeling's solo for glissando flute, Tilt
