Amongst No. 1 : for solo flute and loop pedal [eScore] / Leah Blankendaal.
by Leah Blankendaal (2019)
Available for immediate download
Amongst No. 1 was created in improvisation and developed
over many months of re-performance. A work designed to hold
space, it layers short phrases with the use of a loop pedal or
software. The goal of this work is to create an immersive world
in which the audience sits amongst sound, absorbing it, breathing
it, and sinking entirely into it.
A reference recording of this work can be found on Blankendaal's EP Alongside, Amongst, Against (2020).
In notating this work it is worth mentioning its history and its purpose. Amongst No. 1 is responsive, not prescriptive. The notes on the page are a guide. It is encouraged that the performer takes liberty with time, repeats, dynamics, even where certain phrases are placed in the work. If the performer is comfortable doing so they are welcome to use the material to improvise their own phrases.
Amongst No.1 has taken anywhere between 12-25 minutes to perform.
