Chapter One, Page One (2008)

solo flute or solo soprano saxophone and live audio processing, 8′


  • commissioned by Daniel Buscher

    Chapter One, Page One is a celebration of Henry Miller’s unique and often controversial literary works.¬†Expatriating himself from the American mainstream culture of mediocrity and resignation, Miller’s anti-capitalist, anti-nationalist, and anti-puritan views border somewhere between nihilism and eastern philosophy.¬† The text used in the piece (spoken and sung by the flautist) comes from a short excerpt of Miller’s landmark Tropic of Cancer :

    It is now the fall of my second year in Paris.
    I was sent here for a reason I have not yet been able to fathom.
    I have no money, no resources, no hope.
    I am the happiest man alive.
