Duet : for flute and computer
by Vincent Giles (2011)
This composition is designed for solo flute and
computer, with the computer screen projected behind the
performers. The instructions for the individual performers are
all notated within the score.
The composition is an exploration of the merger between acoustic and electronic sounds through the implementation of a patch created in Pure Data, which analyses the incoming signal to create data that is then used to treat the sound of the acoustic flute.
Instrumentation: Flute, laptop running pure-data with audio interface, microphones and loudspeakers.
Duration: 5 min.
The patch for performance is available at: http://vgiles.net/vin/misc/pd/
