Clarinet / bass clarinet / live electronics
Over the past four years, clarinettist Pete Furniss (a Creative Music Practice - PhD student at Edinburgh College of Art) has developed an electro-instrumental approach that investigates the roles of performer, composer and technology for the contemporry instrumentalist. In this short retrospective of recent work, lines are blurred between composition and improvisation, performer and composer, and between computer system and instrument.
