Description

Composer's Note:

The Frost Performs its Secret Ministry was written for flutist Linda Chatterton and guitarist Jesse Langen. The title comes from the first line of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem Frost at Midnight. This work explores the continuum of noise to pitch that each instrument possesses, through a gradual movement towards the intended method of performing the instrument. Digital processing allows for intense magnification and dissection of each instrument's sound, revealing beautiful inner rhythms and harmonies which mark the path towards producing a pitch. In this case, the path is much like frost's fractal growth that occurs under the cover of night.
