All recorders?
I suspect so. Must be very difficult to keep them in tune at such low registers, but you manage it well. The song title really captures the mood of this airy piece. ... recording seemed to abruptly cut off at the end... I enjoy experiments like this because they are so unusual. Glad I caught this.

No recorders
This is a traverse flute, to be precise a renaissance bass flute, lowest note G. And then it goes through a pitch shifter, and I use a gadget to freeze the sound in place while I solo over it.

So this is a one-take live recording, with a tiny bit of post-processing.

cool use of the effects. the pitch effect sure adds nice harmonics and i like the drone effect for the background. nice trippy sound overall, almost psychedelic.

A neat sound collage improv...
What does freezing mean here?

And how are you doing the pitch shifting?

Freeze and such
I don't think there is much shifting here, unlike in the previous track I posted. I use the Eventide H-9, which has lots of shifting as part of other effects, but this is pretty much a straight chorus.

I've set the SuperEgo in layering mode, so that it can remember multiple pitches, and then stream that through the H-9 chorus. Then I solo over it. The signal path is split, and I use a volume pedal to decide when to inject new sounds into the SuperEgo.

and he did it all
standing on one foot! Ha ha...

But seriously Vic, this is quite lovely. But more core temperature dropped six degrees whilst listening! :-)

Be well friend!

One foot
You're not too far off with that. I'm doing a quite impressive tap dance with the pedals that I'm accumulating.

Full body experience
There are a couple of distracting clicks early on - maybe from your footwork? - but since you are terming this an experiment those can be easily dismissed. It's an odd thought - that you are now playing the flute with both hands and feet. It's become a full body experience. The results are marvelous!

Yeah, this just a document of my process of discovery. Definitely not CD release quality. Glad you liked it for what it is.
