Year 12 AS Homework - Thu 14th October (Mr. Guinane)

Your homework this week is an extension of the idea of 'extended vocal/instrumental techniques' (a key word, remember it!) as exemplified in Berio's catchy Sequenza III for the female voice. I would like a list of these extended techniques for your own instrument, around ten or so, and be creative! Remember the emphasis is on extended techniques, rather than the accepted techniques for your instrument.

If you get the chance, watch some of Berio's Sequenza's being performed on YouTube. There are tons of them, look out for the Trombone Sequenza which requires a very specific dress code on the part of the performer!

Finally, ask yourself, is it music? Think about it.
