I have a piece for percussion and CD (electroacoustic sounds). It is
entitled "Background Count". You can see a live video performance of it by
percussionist Barry Dove at and
check out the link to the Kennedy center recording. Score and performance
CD are available for the asking.

I have a new course starting this session - live electronics performance &
composition. These are conservatoire students - a couple of first study
composers, the others first study instrument or voice.

For part of the course students will be expected to prepare an existing
piece for public performance so I'm looking for pieces for solo instrument &
tape/cd or solo instrument with live electronics (could be amplification,
delay etc, SPX 900, Max/MSP). (The other part of the course involves
students composing).

I'm accumulating as much material as I can but I'm particularly interested
in pieces which are demanding in that they make the students think very
carefully about the relationship between instrument and technology and about
their sound (so not traditionally virtuosic repertoire).

I have one of each:
french horn player
soprano voice
double bass

Any suggestions/recommendations? I'd love to hear what works other folks use
in this (teaching) situation, and if anyone has anything suitable which they
could send, or let me know where I can get hold of performing materials I'd
be grateful.

(Suggestions for other instruments and combinations also welcome for
teaching and future courses)
