"Block Flute Signal #1"
bass recorder, double flute, voice and tape
recorded and assembled november 2011
A long form piece that works with the harmonic and timbrel possibilities of a simple set of materials. Two block flutes--a bass recorder and small double recorder (eastern european in origin)--played by humming and blowing simultaneously to create more than one pitch. The tape loop consists of a simple two-note pattern played on the double recorder, pitched down one octave.
zither, sine wave generators, feedback, tape delay, and field recordings
recorded and assembled in december 2011
Conceived of as a sequence of episodic concrete sounds, out of an interest in listening to things one at a time, as discrete sound forms, that progress in series. Intervals of silence and field recordings made while passing through various thresholds and doorways form transitions between the various sounds.
