Thrashing Out Judy Franklin

An acoustic “roaring wind” sound occurs in the beginning of the song, yields to the other acoustic sounds, and then eventually to pure electronic sound. The flute improvisation is first slow-moving, accelerates, and then is transformed into cascades created with a computer list-sorting algorithm. The same algorithm generates a series of cascading granular pitches that complement those of the flute and bird. In the end the song returns to a pure acoustic birdsong response.
