Shadows Leaves Shimmer YouTube
Sat Dec 01, 2018
I've created a version of Shadow Leaves Shimmer for 8 multi-tracked bass flutes with a video of trees in my backyard. Shadow Leaves Shimmer is an ambient, minimalist work inspired by watching the shadows of leaves on my studio floor. The score for this work is variable with numerous possibilities for interpretation. The work is for any combination of instruments. In this version you hear variations on a fundamental chord of G7, with the 7ths slightly flat to resemble the harmonic series. The bass flutes perform deep meditative breaths which slowly change character over time. Occasionally the harmony is modified with other chords. This version is a little over one hour. Shadow Leaves Shimmer was commissioned by the UpStream Music Association, Halifax, NS.
