Reed Spectrum

for Oboe and Live Electronics

'Reed Spectrum' is my first piece which involves live electronics. I've chosen the oboe because it is an instrument I'm most familiar with. The word 'spectrum' makes a reference to the spectral music I've been exposed to recently, and the piece is therefore an attempt to infuse some of spectral harmony into traditional harmony. This is the first piece of a series of spectral pieces involving electronics.
