Beautiful Bonnie. Are there pieces in which the flutist also sings to create chords in a manner similar to the von Weber horn concerto? Maybe that can be your next compositional project.

Sure, Noe. The only thing is that, for soprano and alto ranges, there are a ton of difference tones provoked, so the harmony often isn't quite as clear. (For lower voices, the pitches differentiate better.) So I tend to go with two (or more) pitches coming directly from the flute.
