Electronics for “Lament en route to Auschwitz”
Lament en route to Auschwitz for flute and electronics was commissioned by the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) for the flautist George Fazakas. The electronics that accompany the flute for this composition were created using war sounds and Jewish prayers. The electronics were created in ProTools – an excerpt of the ProTools session is shown in the picture above. Rehearsals (with electronics) for this work will start in April 2019. Updates with more details will be posted soon.
