The long awaited last chorus of Peter Guidi's solo is finally here! One of the interesting aspects of improvising on the flute is the freedom one has with his or her mouth. You can do numerous tone colors, articulations, and, in this case, even sing while you play the instrument since your mouth is unobstructed by a mouthpiece. Peter Guidi makes use of this in his last chorus in this solo, humming in falsetto whilst he plays his flute.
It creates an interesting electric effect, and depending on which pitch your voice is on in relation to the pitch the flute is playing, you can hear difference tones in the frequencies and even create intervals for a cool chorus like effect. I am not experienced in this technique; I have used it before during my solos, though never to the extent Guidi uses here. It can be a bit abrasive to listen to if it's used incorrectly or if the listener doesn't know it's coming. Since this recording features it heavily, I wanted to give fair warning before you listened and wondered what I was doing.
A few updates to my upcoming projects:
That's about it! Thanks for your support, and I hope you enjoy this recording!
First of all, I apologize for the lack of updates in the last month. I was swamped with work for school and midterm studying, and so it became difficult to find time to post updates on my website. I'm glad I finally have a chance to breathe and post again!
With that being said, I have some news about upcoming projects and events that pertain to me:
