SR/Gary Verkade: FLUX Revisited 2015

Posted by on 2015 08 19 in Audio

A brand-new recording by Gary Verkade of my old composition Flux for organ (1987) – on a wonderful-sounding instrument in northernmost Sweden late in 2014 – was the occasion for me to hear this old piece again after many years and remember that I had composed a whole range of modules written out on paper and then distributed on the page at will and fixed in place.

Hearing that fine recording of the material anew, I realised that I could return the fragments to their original free state and let them re-combine freely by using a shuffle mode to play the samples, or make new orderings of the material or use it further in performances…

Listen on Soundcloud by hitting the Soundcloud icon upper right – there you can activate shuffle mode and much better see what he is currently playing.
