Day 258, Tracks 85 – 101

It’s been nearly 3 months since my last post, and while I’ve been quite busy recently I was unable to play for sometime due to illness. I’ve managed to develop severe asthma and am having trouble playing for more than a couple of hours per day, and even then anything that demands a lot of air will send me to bed for the next day. I’ve been exploring Salvatore Sciarrino’s flute techniques which are often very soft, rarely exceeding pp. I’ve also been using a Max for Live device called SDMAS (Spectral Domain Microsound Amplification Software) care of Vince Giles (www.vgiles.net), as well as Ableton Live affects and processes. 

With a lot of luck I’ll be able to complete this challenge by the end of the year, but as I had such a major set-back (not to mention starting late) I may extend it to March 2015.

Enjoy!
