@CarlWitthoft: damn, I was going to use baritone, octave sub-bass and mezzo-soprano clefs all over the place for the oboe...

comment What is this orchestration technique called?
Ok, that makes it clearer. So you mean that ~1 second long dissonant brassy sound at 2:56?

With that edit, couldn't you have put in a link (e.g. on YouTube) to an example, as everybody's asking for? That would really be more useful than any description with words.

comment When composing for oboe, how useful is it to think about recorder fingerings?
@Patrx2: interesting. You wouldn't like to make that an answer specifically adressing oboe, would you? — Regarding fingering charts, could you recommend some book or something where I can find charts, ideally including also microtonal pitches?

comment When composing for oboe, how useful is it to think about recorder fingerings?
Tenor recorder is a transposing instrument? Not in my book. That's why I singled it out. At any rate, transposition of the sheet music is trivial by software; what I'm interested in is how various sounding pitches lie on each instrument. It seems oboe is somewhat similar to tenor here – but I'm not really sure; that's why I asked the question, and specifically about fingerings. Naturally, sound- etc. characteristics of different instruments are important too as you say, but IMO the fingering is absolutely crucial for writing lines that are really natural (at least on string instruments).

comment Transcribing a 2 second segment
Welcome to music.SE. I think this answer is not off-topic because it doesn't ask for a transcription, but just asks what's wrong the transcription you have. What I don't like so much is that we need to manually download that mp2 file from Zippyshare – if you could embed from YouTube or Soundcloud instead, that would be nice.

Welcome anyway, and sorry that we're a bit pedantic here – only, it does help to keep the site clean of garbage posts. I tried to convert your comment into an actual answer to the question, hopefully it is Ok now.

comment How do other magnets affect pickups?
It is hard to move around a handheld magnet fast enough to be audible. But if you just hold it close to the pickup and tap slightly on it, you will hear a thud, similar to when you hit the strings with your flat hand.
