je me nuit (2007)
flute(s) + 4ch electroacoustic environment
- Performed by Gavin Osborn (fl), York Late Music Festival, UK (2010)
- Performed by Gavin Osborn (fl), MANTIS 10th anniv. festival, Manchester, UK (2008)
This work can be performed by one, two, or three flutes, using the same four-channel live electroacoustic setup using a MaxMSP patch.
The performer(s) is gradually surrounded and obscured by sound projected through the loudspeakers, sound which originated with and is derived from their own sound (nuit/nuis — night/harm).
The performer(s) is guided by a graphic notation as to the layout and performing modes of the work, and judges timing by listening to the contours of the electroacoustic environment, navigating moment-to-moment changes of pressure.
With thanks to Gavin Osborn for working on the the development of the piece and for the first performances.
