Recombinant serenade

for horn and computer

ABOUT: Available on Decade Zero

Recombinant Serenade was written for and is dedicated to Lin Foulk.  The work is a series of variations on and over the “Prologue” of Benjamin Britten’s Serenade for tenor, horn, and strings.  I recorded Dr. Foulk playing the “Prologue” on natural horn.  These recordings were then manipulated and they serve as part of the electronic accompaniment.  The live horn is also processed in real time.
