Adem & Eva - quarter tone flute

'Adem' is Dutch for breath and 'Eva' is a reference to Eva Kingma inventor and maker of the Kingma system quarter tone flute on which this piece is performed. This is an improvised solo piece based on the traditional blues form utilising the quarter tones to make the blue notes even bluer. The improvisation begins with breathy air tones and includes many modern flute techniques, from jet whistles to multiphonics and vocalising in harmony with the flute. Occasionally a combination of multiphonics and voice is used to create three note chords.
