Description
Composed 2006
Duration 2:00 approx.
for voice and hands (optional percussion/instruments)

The performer speaks rhythmically and at the same time rubs together the palms of their hands, or sandpaper blocks, with the same spoken rhythm and also where marked in the text with dashes (- - - - -).
The bracketed direction (open hands) is not spoken, but is an indication to the performer to open their hands wide as a dramatic gesture.

Examples of optional instruments - all playing a very quiet tremolo:
Three players on low drums with soft sticks
Any three low notes on marimba or vibraphone
Three groups of strings quite drumming fingers on the instrument bodies.

The three players/groups enter as indicated in relation to the text - [1], [2], [3] - and stop, fade, crescendo where indicated.

Programme note

‘And She Flew’ was composed by Paul Burnell in 2006 and was first performed by percussionist Chris Brannick. The piece can be performed as a solo or together with accompanying instruments playing a quiet tremolo.
