The development of the electroacoustic genre has presented modern recorder players
with a myriad of new and exciting repertoire, but many acoustic musicians are reluctant to
explore these new works due to the barriers of technology. Many different electronic devices
are used in composition and performance, and this can be daunting for a performer with no
previous experience in the field. This resource is designed to assist the performer in the
transition from acoustic to electroacoustic performer, and aims to reach performers and
teachers of the recorder to encourage more performances of works in this exciting genre.
This thesis is primarily of interest to recorder players, but is also useful for composers
interested in using recorders in an electroacoustic context. It examines aspects of the recorder
which make the instrument particularly well suited to the electroacoustic genre, including
acoustics and timbre shifting potential of recorders, and provides information about some
compositional ideas which are relevant to the performer. An understanding of the importance
of audience perception and the expression of gesture and texture in the electroacoustic genre
creates a more sensitive performance, where the performer is aware of their role within the
context of the music.
A discussion of repertoire is arranged in a progression of least to most complicated
electronics; this is to assist the performer in learning to use various electronic devices in
performance. All recorders and electronics required for performance of selected works are
described in relation to each piece, and performance notes are included as well. This
knowledge can be applied to the performance of other electroacoustic works, and it is hoped
the thesis will encourage performers and composers to collaborate in the production of new
works to contribute to the huge body of electroacoustic repertoire for recorders.||en_AU|
