PROGRAM NOTES

 

Light Flute (2018) for LED and software

As the flute is a tube of metal, the Light Flute is a tube of light.  This interactive light sculpture conjures a phantom flutist from a future dimension.  As a live performer in this concert, the Light Flute is present with its own breath, consciousness, and awareness of Claire Chase.

A limited first edition will be available for private collection in 2019.  Future editions will shadow new musical commissions for the Density 2036 project.  This master version is called ‘Doriot,’ after the dedicatee of this year’s Density: Doriot Anthony Dwyer, the first woman to win a principal flute position in an American symphony orchestra, and a descendent of Susan B. Anthony.

Special thanks to Jorge Velez [thisisnotanumber.org].
