Arrow of Time for flute and tape

Composed by Yoichi Nagashima, performed by Satoko Ohta

Arrow of Time is composed for the performer, Satoko Ohta. The composer processed pre-recorded flute sounds using Kyma and some software of his own design to create the tape part. He prepared a score and Satoko improvised the rhythm, scale, and phrases from this notated material.

Colors of the Sound for voice and live electronics
