  • Chenoa Anderson, flute
Krishna's Flute is a CD of Canadian music for flute and electronics performed by new music specialist Chenoa Anderson, and composed by six composers from across Canada: Keith Hamel, Derek Charke, Brent Lee, John Oliver, WL Altman, and Ian Crutchley. Whereas their musical styles may vary, there is a thematic unity to this release: disturbances, turbulent flow, paradise lost… Even the White Dove flies off suddenly at times! In aftertouch the flute disturbs the space with gestures that push a feedback circuit to overdrive. The title track charms us by magnificent and magical sonic extensions. For the tech-savy, these works are created using Max/MSP and Ableton LIVE.
