Crystals for Reed Trio & Electronics

The wonderful Voxman Reed Trio premièred Crystals during the 2017 International Double Reed Conference at Lawrence University. Many thanks to Courtney Miller (oboe), Jorge Montilla (clarinet), and Benjamin Coelho (bassoon)!

Live Electronics

In this piece, the oboe plays an acoustic part, and is accompanied by electronically-augmented clarinet & bassoon. Jorge used a PiezoBarrel pickup, Benjamin a Little Jake bassoon bocal pickup.

Their sound was processed by an analog frequency shifting pedal and an especially programmed Eclipse sound processor.

I love how Ben interpreted the cadenza part: indeed, this cadenza may be improvised. Listen to his version from 5:56 in the video.
