Hiccups + playing Oboe = ???? Are you serious


  1. I bet you sure can make some funny sounds. I am surprised some contemporary composers haven’t incorporated this technique.

    Actually, it isn’t very funny when you are the only afflicted and it is time to play.

  2. There are some other techniques I’m surprised composers don’t ever use, Beth … like stopping the tone with our tongue … it sounds like “backwards music”. (I ask my students, “Haven’t you ever heard tapes played backwards and of course they look at me like I’m crazy because who ever hears tapes any more?!)
