CUSP Presents: Robert Dick
A flutist whose technical resources and imagination seem limitless.
New York Times
Robert Dick has dispensed with preconceptions about what a flutist should sound like and what a flutist should play. A revolutionary composer/performer/improviser, he has literally redefined the flute for our age. He began composing and improvising in the 1970s, driven by the core idea that acoustic instruments can be played as human-powered synthesizers.
Listening to Robert Dick play solo has been likened to the experience of hearing a full orchestra. His sound can be thick chords one instant, then chromatic percussion, then delicate whispering or a display of surprising power. Hes collaborated with improvisors from over the world and has performed and recorded with an extraordinary array of musical personalities, including Steve Lacy, John Zorn, Ursel Schlicht, Adam Caine, Tiffany Weitien Chang, Nicola Hein, Dan Blake, Miya Masaoka, Joëlle Leandre, Ned Rothenberg and very many others.
Roberts invention, the Glissando Headjoint®, has revolutionized the essential sound of the flute, bring a vocal quality that is entirely new to the instrument.
