Differing Dialogues

By Vincent Giles

Regular price $14.00 Sale

Solo bass flute with audio download playback, c.4'40

The dialogues form a context for a solo by bass flute which deviates in and out of the musical conversation, including some improvised sections in which listening becomes the primary focus for the performer. Part of the enjoyment of the work is the subjective interpretation.  Composed 2009 rev. 2011

Duet

By Vincent Giles

Regular price $14.00 Sale

Duet for flute and computer  c.4'40

This composition is designed for solo flute and computer, with the computer screen projected behind the performers. The instructions for the individual performers are all notated within the score.

The composition is an exploration of the merger between acoustic and electronic sounds through the implementation of a patch created in Pure Data, which analyses the incoming signal to create data that is then used to treat the sound of the acoustic flute.   http://www.github.com/vgiles/duet_flute (or just to www.vgiles.net - follow the Software part of the menu).

Four Suits of Thirteen

By Vincent Giles

Regular price $34.00 Sale

Chamber quartet for flute, clarinet, violin and cello, c.7'00-9'00 

This piece is designed around processes of indeterminacy using cards as the basis for pitch material, each card from A through to Queen represents a different pitch based on a set theory (C=0, C#=1 and so on) while the King represents a wild card. Each movement is quite short and represents a different characteristic of a suit of cards - clubs, diamonds, spades and hearts. Composed 2011

Fragments

By Vincent Giles

Regular price $24.00 Sale

Flute ensemble  c.5'00

It is a composition that takes a series of musical fragments, which, discreetly, demonstrate two main musical themes, which are transformed and re-presented throughout the work. These fragments are arranged as independent “sound masses”, much in the same way as electroacoustic music, interacting differently according to what sounds they are placed with. The piece is designed to be antiphonic, for stereo perception and the players are split up accordingly,  the parts interact from left to right and vice-versa.   Composed 2010 rev 3013

It needs a big 'ow' sound; ow-nd... ground!

By Vincent Giles

Regular price $14.00 Sale

For any low woodwind (sounding below C3 at its top register)

This composition is a variation on the entirety of Evan Johnson’s Ground, and utilises a MaxMSP patch originally developed by Lindsay Vickery with modifications by the composer.

The work is an investigation into the retention of a piece’s identity through multiple iterations (vaguely akin to Lucier’s I am sitting in a room) through its microsonic content. This variation retains Johnson’s metric and tempo markings, along with some of the dynamic markings and re-maps them without concern to the actual gestures made to a stylised version of a peak-frequency spectrogram made of a recording of the source work.

Composed 2015-2016
