This is a CD of music which combines the oboe with different forms of live electronics; from pre-recorded cor anglais through to a turntable player. Just one work does not include electronics: Gorton’s Schmetterlingspiel. Improvisation at different levels also plays a significant role and that is why, on this double CD set, two works are repeated - the two performances are significantly different from each other.
