Amongst No. 1 : for solo flute and loop pedal / Leah Blankendaal.

Library shelf no. 788.32/BLA 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

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.
