Looking Back, Looking Forward!
In light of that I am going to tackle a work for flute and electronics as Camilla Hoitenga, Sato Moughalian, and Carla Rees have expressed an interest in me writing something for them. If all goes well, hopefully this work will gain some traction with these fine performers as a bi-continental endeavor!
My work on the Bonhoeffer did lead to some break throughs for me in the programming environment Max/MSP. Part of my compositional process deals with pitch-fields and manipulating them in all kinds of ways and as such I have been working on a synthesizer in Max that allows me to work with these pitch-fields.
The attached screen shot shows part of the patch I have been working through un building self-generative synthesizer I call Pitchfiled Synth. I hope to further develop this aspect within a work for flute and electronics! This sound file is only a test file which I used to set-up up the synth (an FM synthesizer) but it does give an impression of what some of it may sound like.
