Capitol Woodwind Quintet

"The programs most interesting piece was Margaret Brouwers Diary of an Alien for solo flute andin one sectiontape. A collection of movements to be played (or not) in any order, they employ a variety of techniques with imagination and humor and use the technology sensibly. One movement called on flutist Alice Weinreb to play just the mouth-piece, which proved to be an amazingly versatile instrument; another used a taped-delay echo to produce waves of overlapping lines; and a third, a mini-drama, had the flute and the flutist involved in negotiating the frustrations of voice mail."
