There is no well-researched description of the recorder as an instrument for contemporary music that composers can use when writing for the instrument. This led Tomma Wessel to research into the recorder. She investigates the instrument and its sound parameters and studies both traditional and extended techniques, taking into account the differences that result from the huge number of recorder types and sizes.

Tomma Wessel has years of experience with performing contemporary recorder music and this constantly influences her research. It helps her make inevitable choices both with regard  to the selection of the material and the way in which it will be presented.

As part of the research project, pieces for different combinations of instruments have been commissioned from composers representing varying styles. Tomma Wessel’s research benefits from frequent discussions with these composers about artistic as well as practical problems.
