Dorothy Hindman's musical journey took a circuitous route. From studying rock and electronic music to finding a home writing music for ensembles, Hindman built her unique musical language from seemingly disparate parts. Her music often finds itself in between aesthetics, borrowing from both punk/grunge music and a kind of angular pattern-based music. Blow by Blow showcases new works for winds and percussion by one of today's most energetic composers. A double-album, one-two punch traversing three decades of musical territory, it pulses and soars, hammers and roars - popping and crackling with harnessed energy. Insistent rhythms whip riffs into intricate, towering formations in Mechanisms for flute ensemble, Cascade for saxophone ensemble, and Fission for concert band. Shimmering colors waft equally through the wind-up clockwork of Hindman's Drift (for sax quartet) and Multiverses (for percussion quartet), and the nebulous soundscapes and solos of Trembling for flute, Soliloquy for Clarinet, Beyond the Cloud of Unknowing for marimba, and Untitled I. An air of bouncy humor suffuses the short, sweet Big Fun for baritone saxophone, CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE for reed quintet, and Lost in Translation for soprano saxophone, while Stuart Gerber's breathtaking, thundering Tapping the Furnace for vocalizing percussionist leaves behind a deafening wake. In over 75 works fusing a punk/grunge background with classical refinement, Dorothy Hindman has pushed the boundaries of the technically possible with unique, visceral elegance. At Birmingham-Southern College, Hindman's music theory courses paired college students with underprivileged 5th graders to write, compose, and perform original youth operas. Hindman's Justly Tuned concert series under the auspices of the Foundation for Emerging Technologies and the Arts (FETA), presents new music that engages with social and political issues, exploring music as communication, commentary, and catalyst for change, and promoting unheard stories, underserved voices, and fresh ideas.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
