Canticle

  • Instrumentation: wind instrument + live electronics (one performer)
  • Premiered: November 1st 2015, in Ades Performance Space at Manhattan School of Music in New York City, by Sam Torres.
  • Notes: Aside from being adaptable for any wind instrument, this piece exists in two versions: one for musicians who have experience and comfort with improvisation and performing with electronics, and another for musicians who are new to either improvisation or live electronics. I made the second version as a way to welcome performers new to electronics into the world of electroacoustic music in as un-intimidatingly a way as I could. The music in the second version is the same, so the performer gets to perform the whole piece as it was originally (musically) intended, but the performer-electronics interface is greatly simplified. Please contact me if you’re interested in learning more or performing the piece.
