The Flute View, August 1, 2014… interesting electronic writing and challenging flute parts, utilizing many extended techniques for the flutist.
Chenoa Anderson has a new CD for flute and electronics by Canadian composers. She is one of Canada’s leading interpreters of new music, seeking exciting new composers and repertoire. This CD is a selection of some of these new works.
There are six pieces on the CD and they all employ interesting electronic writing and challenging flute parts, utilizing many extended techniques for the flutist. Having just completed my first composition for flute and electronics myself, it seems to me that flute and electronics is a special form, giving us a chance, as flutists to create dramatic sound paintings that can abstractly or literally tell a story.
The CD includes works by Keith Hamel, Derek Charke, Brent Lee, John Oliver, WL Altman, and Ian Crutchley. All of them employ variously, processors, samplers, software synthesizers, pre-recording, looping, multi tracks, reverb and more to extend the flute sound. With and without scores the pieces are very evocative and Anderson plays them with conviction and thoughtfulness creating dramatic sound paintings and telling stories. In fact while I listened I was thinking, “this CD is a compendium of all the sounds you can make with a flute!” These pieces require deep listening, but I think you will enjoy the experience very much.
