A preliminary manual of phonetics in contemporary flute playing


This dissertation is an instructional manual written both for flute players who would like to play Beat Furrer's auf törnernen füssen, and also for composers who are interested in knowing about the techniques in Furrer's piece. The purpose is to contribute to the birth of techniques of this sort by providing a resource. An instructional manual and sound examples focus on the practical and aural aspects of producing wind sounds with unvoiced consonants and vowels or with plosive sounds.
