Bartolozzi Sounds

  Bartolozzi sounds are named after Bruno Bartolozzi, who, in 1967, wrote a book describing them and explaining how to produce them from wind instruments. By using ‘new’ fingerings and ways of blowing, it is possible to produce, and control, all kinds of previously unorthodox sounds, such as chords, harmonics and microtones. These sounds were once considered freakish, but are now part of the standard repertory of composers, for example Luciano Berio or Karlheinz Stockhausen, and of performers, such as the oboist Heinz Holliger or the trombonist Vinco Globokar.
