“Angularities”, written for Dr. Tammy Evans Yonce, explores rhythmic, harmonic and melodic angularities for glissando headjoint flute. Harmonically, this piece uses octatonic, chromatic, minor pentatonic and minor pitch collections moving between pitch centricities with rapid, angular trajectories. Angular leaps in the melody are contrasted by smooth, scalar passages leading to a mournful middle section in D minor. Rhythmic angularities are bound together through syncopated rhythmic motives creating a sense of continuity and forward momentum. In short, this piece dances through pitch centers, slides through emotional twists and leaves the listener tapping their toes.
