Dream of Naksongdae coverDREAM OF NAKSONGDAE (1993, revised 2005) for solo flute by Randall Snyder.

This work was originally written for the Taegum, and now transcribed for the modern flute, still retains the flavor of the Korean instrument through the various use of vibrato, microtonal shadings, and glissandi.

Pipe Dream coverPIPE DREAM (1992) for solo flute by Howard J. Buss was written for Kim McCormick. While composing this contemplative piece the composer envisioned a setting in which a person is meditating in a forest on a sunny afternoon. Compositionally, actual bird calls are interjected to present new melodic and rhythmic ideas and influence the overall development of the work. This device also symbolically represents how environmental sounds can be suggestive and influence thought patterns. Finalist in the 1993 Newly-Published Music Competition of the National Flute Association.- "A warm, leisurely exploration of hot, lazy sensations". - Paul Ingram, Fanfare Magazine (May/June 2004) Recorded on the CD Twilight Remembered available from Brixton (6’25")  Grade V.

Space Renaissance Suite coverSPACE RENAISSANCE SUITE (2013) for solo flute by Howard J. Buss is dedicated to the renowned Italian flutist, Elena Cecconi. It was inspired by the tenets of the Space Renaissance Initiative, which is dedicated to influencing world opinion to support space travel and to “lift humanity from the cradle of the Earth.” The 4 movements explore imaginary scenarios one may experience during future space travel and the colonization of distant worlds. Through the Portal and Alien Storm musically depict one’s first glimpses of an alien world. Introspection and Reaching Beyond address the intriguing opposing mental capacities that allow a human being to tap into his/her inner self to connect with the universe, and also to kindle the desire to reach outward to new adventures and exploration. Movements: Through the Portal (1:45); Alien Storm (1:45); Introspection (2:05); Reaching Beyond (2:05) total duration: (7'45") Grade V.
