CASA received the following notice which we share with all our readers:


Project "Extended"

Greetings! This is a project to expand the repertoire of the flute in the most innovative ways possible. The idea is to challenge composers to write using only the most uncommon techniques.


Works should be no longer than 10 min.

Works must be for one unaccompanied piccolo, flute, alto flute or bass flute.

Amplification is optional.

Submissions must be engraved. Hand-written scores will be disqualified.

Works may only use extended techniques: no “regular” sounds. These techniques may include, but not be limited to: flutter-tongue, multi-phonics, aeolian harp, whistle tones, lip pizzicato, tongue ram, tongue slap, playing and singing, etc. Please refer to Pierre-Yves Artaud “La Flûte Avant-garde” and Robert Dick’s “The Other Flute” for notation purposes.

For a sample of sounds and pieces, please visit:

Works must never have been performed, recorded, or published.

Submission instructions:

Please submit a PDF, Sibelius or Finale file of the work, and complete contact information to: The following sentence must be clearly printed under the title: “written for Orlando Cela and the Project ‘Extended.’”

Oct. 31, 2011, for recording consideration. Works received by September 4, 2011 will receive priority. After the deadline, other works may be considered for live performances only. Those selected will be notified no later than Dec. 4, 2011.
