program note

Fade for flute and soundtrack was commissioned by The National Flute Association for the 2019 Young Artist Competition. It is the 12th work in my series of compositions for solo instrument with electronics. As is my habit with these pieces, the two parts are woven together into an aural landscape of shifting rhythms and textures based upon the sonic material of the acoustic instrument. The electronic part of Fade is comprised entirely of acoustic flute sounds, some of which are easily identifiable, and others of which have been processed into completely different forms using a variety of software tools. The work explores the nature of human memory; which memories “stick” with us, the ways in which memories transform and mutate over time, and how they can seem to vanish, only to reappear at later unexpected moments.
