Rocks sing by moonlight
An improvisation on Cycles and Lines by Warwick Bone. Warwick wrote the original work for flute and marimba circa. 1979 while a student at the Victorian College of the Arts. The first performance was given in that year by fellow students, David Pye and Prudence Davis (now Principal Flute of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra). David has since performed the work many times in both its original version and in differing combinations of instruments. The score prescribes the pitch materials of the flute part whilst leaving register, timbre, rhythm, duration etc. open to the performer. The marimba cycles are fixed, although the number of repetitions of each cycle are determined by the length of each line in the flute part.
