Rain in the Canyon
Rain in the canyon combines my interests in real and virtual instruments. Over a simple synthesizer bass (Muon Tau Pro through MHC Space Effect) and some percussion (YellowTools Culture), I played a long improvisation on a Butch Hall flute that I had bought a while ago. The Native American flute is a primitive instrument, excellent for pentatonic playing but difficult to play chromatically, and barely more than an octave range. However, it is extremely expressive in tone. Here, the flute is processed by a whole lot of software to intensify the mood of this piece.
