The Flute Convention

I was invited to perform a couple of works at the US National Flute Convention held in Minneapolis this year. I am representing a small group of Minnesota Native flutists that made careers elsewhere and are performing together on Saturday 12 August at 15.00.

And I am selling some of my stuff at the convention!

RAW at the MAZE Festival

RAW will be performed on Saturday 21 May as part of the MAZE Festival.

As usual I’ve been messing with the Max Patch just to give some unpredictability to the upcoming performance.

RAW is a work that asks the musicians to improvise on unfinished musical material and to collectively create a work in real time as they are given ongoing random choices to make. RAW embraces the unpolished and unbridled opportunities that unforseen combinations offer us to respond to in the process of making art.

RAW is a Max patch where each player influences the structure by sending a message to the patch at his or her own discretion. The Max patch in turn chooses random combinations of players to play, suggestions for the type of music to play and random prerecorded text samples to be played.

The score is broadcast on iPads:
