Robert Dick (1950- )

Robert Dick is one of the most prominent of the generation of flutist-composers after World War 2 who extended the flute's musical language by employing new techniques, such as multiphonics and key noises, to make sounds not previously considered musical. He has also enthusiastically adopted flutes in large sizes or with innovative mechanisms by flute makers such as Eva Kingma to expand the range of sounds available.

Dick's influences come from jazz and eastern musics as well as from experimentation with contemporary techniques. As a flute virtuoso, composer, improviser, and recording artist, as well as author of important treatises on contemporary extended techniques for flute-playing, he has had a widespread influence in turn on new directions in flute-playing.
