Lunar Mural I for Solo Alto Flute and Playback by David Gunn
Written for flutist Laurel Ann Maurer. The playback is not so much a soundscape as it is an electronic instrumental ensemble that doesn’t collect union dues. Premiered at The Brick Elephant in northern New York (state, not city). The National Flute Association’s Low Flute Committee selected L.M.1 as a “Level H Recommended Piece” of the 2011 Selected Alto Flute Repertoire.
This part pensive, part energetic solo for alto flute and CD playback is the first of six compositions for solo flute + playback. Gunn is a contemporary American composer.
