The flute, in the Western musical tradition, is an instrument rich in symbolism. What images or ideas do we associate typically with its sound? If the flute were an actress, ready to play a particular character, which one might it be? Do certain stereotypes exist? Perhaps one of its most well-known roles is to paraphrase a certain member of the animal kingdom. Many composers throughout the centuries, from Vivaldi to Prokofiev, have coincided in granting the flute this role, so notorious within popular culture: to evoke the cheerful little bird, perky and light-footed, nonchalant and agile in its song. Although likeable, this role is perhaps a bit one-sided, and falls a bit short of realizing the flute´s true expressive possibilities. What would happen if, just to stay on topic, we decided to start exploring 'other' birds through the flute? The tuhuayo is probably not your typical 'flute' bird. It lives in the Peruvian jungle, comes out only at night, and is not that small. It flies to catch its prey, but is otherwise very fond of the ground; so much, that it actually lays its eggs there, without a nest. Only at full moon, the tuhuayo sings. ------------------------------- To watch a video performance of this piece, visit:
