Tumors and Music (But Mostly Music)

I'm Robin. I'm a 21 year old grad student who spends her whole life thinking about flute and music (and Totoro). I have struggled with oral surgeries and sometime post about it, but not very often. I post what I like, mostly music, and love answering any questions you may have! If you put instruments on music stands you shouldn't follow me.

Awww I like that. You’re sweet :)

Breaks On A Flute - August Murphy-King

Robin Meiksins - Alto Flute

Premiered at Centre d’Arts Orford 7/16/14

The idea with this piece was to only use the percussive flute sounds (key clicks, tongue ram, and slap tongue) to imitate a drum break.  (Turn up the volume, the recording is a little quiet)

I’m really digging this

Small instruments for a big band. Trumpet, French Horn, Cello, Piano, Drums.

Strange sort of big band admittedly.
