TRKs for Flute and CD by Clarke and Painter

Ian Clarke/Simon Painter (flute and CD backing)
Level-advanced, requires open holes


A unique and dramatic piece, somewhat reminiscent of Pink Floyd for flute. It was originally recorded in the studio but can also be performed live with the accompanying CD. The track incorporates processed flutes, guitars, samples, and drums. The music includes some extended techniques. Pre-publication performances have taken place across three continents.

Unlike many of my other works, the title does not have a specific meaning and serves as a space for the listener/performer to bring their own thoughts. The markings within the music itself hold more significance. Apart from that, there is no intentional programmatic, literary, or external element. The title, “T R K s,” was chosen by Simon and Ian in the studio as a reference to trill keys, not tracks.

Composer/Flautist-Ian Clarke

Ian Clarke (born 1964) is an esteemed flautist and composer, regularly invited as a guest soloist and instructor at major conventions worldwide. His performances and teaching engagements have spanned countries including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Iceland, Japan, various European nations, the United States (National Flute Association), and the United Kingdom (British Flute Society).

Notably, at the 2017 NFA convention in Minneapolis, he premiered his new concerto for flute and strings. Ian’s albums, such as the highly regarded ‘Within,’ have achieved significant success in the flute world, including ‘Deep Blue’ reaching the top 10 in the UK Classical Artist Chart.

He has conducted masterclasses at prestigious institutions like the Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Juilliard School, and Manhattan School of Music.

Ian’s musical versatility extends across genres, from classical opera to guest appearances with rock group Jethro Tull/Ian Anderson.

Ian pursued part-time studies at the Guildhall School of Music in London, where he excelled as a prize-winning student. Concurrently, he earned an Honours degree in Mathematics from Imperial College London.

Currently, Ian holds the position of Professor of Flute at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. His collaborations with musician and composer Simon Painter have yielded compositions for film and television. Additionally, Ian proudly represents the flute brand, Miyazawa, as an International Miyazawa Flute artist.
