Pete’s Dance

Meet Pete.

This is an improvised work that explores the motion of a flutist’s hands on the keys. When a simple finger puppet is worn on the right hand middle finger, it appears to have limbs. Moving the keys of the right hand help bring Pete to life. Moving the left hand fingers simultaneous opens a new world of sound for Pete.

Pete has a friend of the same name. Meet him in my works “Chatter” and “Pete and Pete Meet”.
