Bertold Hummel: YUME I-IV for Solo Flute and Flute Sounds op. 41A (1971)
Elzbieta Podlesny, flute - October 13, 1996, Szczecin (Poland)
Bertold Hummel with his students Hermann Beyer and Jürgen Weimer, University of Music Würzburg, 1975

The work Yume I-IV, composed in 1971 at the instigation of my colleague Werner Berndsen, took its title from the Japanese word "Yume", meaning "Dreams".
In four sections, the "live" solo flute hears a tape which contains sounds, melodies, rhythms and noises produced only by instruments of the flute family (piccolo, great flute, alto flute). These taped events are however transmuted by all kinds of manipulation such as double and half speed, backwards play, echo effects, etc.

YUME III: click effect (tongue clicking with flute in playing position) / glissando produced by introducing thumb into the head-piece. / tremolo with all pads / blowing into the mouthpiece, all the air passing into the tube (cat's hissing) / glissando (over a minor seventh) / merging in of particular passages in double speed / flageolet and glissando for the solo flute.
