The Witch On Bear Mountain

Iktus Duo (Christopher Graham, percussion and Hristina Blagoeve, flute) are taking a new piece I wrote for them on their tour through Texas and Louisiana. The piece, The Witch On Bear Mountain, features a lot of intricate interplay between the two instruments and explores some deep subtleties of a pitch-noise spectrum. I am very excited to have Chris and Hristina be a part, not only of Southeastern Louisiana University’s Guest Artist Recital series, but also a part of Versipel New Music’s Visiting Artist Series at Cafe Istanbul in New Orleans. Also on their program:

Joseph Pereira: “Echi Dromo for flute and dumbek”
Lou Harrison: First Concerto for flute and percussion
Cornelius Cardew: Treatise (selected excerpt)
Mark Engebretson: Duo for flute & percussion “Floam” and “Whac-a-mole”
