Winter Music


    India Gailey has recorded a wonderful version of my piece Winter Music on her debut album, which was released today. You can buy the album here. Winter Music was created during a residency at the Banff Centre in January 2017. I recorded natural sounds and improvised outdoors with my breath, voice, and hands. I also built a cello (for lack of a better word) out of ice. I shaped the resulting recordings into an electronic track that creates an environment for performers to improvise with. Winter Music was premiered on flute by Yong Clark, and has also been performed on cello and accordion by Brice Catherin and Branko Džinović.


    You can hear the track alone, and a performance by Yong Clark below, and see the score here.
