Time (For Flute and Computer Interface) (2014)

This piece, Time for flute and interactive electronics, uses a setup with three different microphones on the stage.  Each microphone augments the sound of the flute in a different way, such as playing the live sound an octave lower, or delaying the sound by a set amount of time.  The title of the piece comes from two of the more prominent effects that are used on the flute, which make the flute sound seem to be stopped in time.  The first of these effects is using the acoustic sound of the flute to create long drones over which the flute plays.  The second effect creates a cloud of sound based off of the acoustic sound of the flute that slowly changes in response to the flute's playing.  The piece has three main sections. It begins with a slow thoughtful passage followed by a faster more rhythmic middle section.   The third section is a return to the slower thoughtful mood from the beginning.
