Flute drones (sketch)

March 28, 2011 in Acoustic, Electronic, Music

Here is short piece made for a memorial concert for my friend Christina Parks who died recently. I recorded myself playing the first 7 partials of the low B and C# and the first 6 of the low F# of the flute, all in just intonation, composed with only those pitches, and run them through some overdrive distortion to bring out the difference tones. This version was intended to be one part of a collaboration between Krista Penney, Caroline McCaskey, and I so I kept it short. Sometime soon I intend to expand this to a larger work that could be performed by a flute ensemble with live processing.

Aurora

April 21, 2007 in Acoustic, Music

Aurora (2007) for solo male flautist deals with blurring the line between performer and instrument. The piece evolves over a series of one breath long phrases and fuses traditional playing with singing and extended techniques to create a sonic hybrid between the flute and the flautist.
