    Description

    ONE of the world’s most ancient musical instruments is combined with advanced electronics in a new recording from the University of Huddersfield’s Monty Adkins.  It is the product of a key transatlantic collaboration. 

    The disc, named Lépidoptères, has been released by the renowned Canadian label empreintes DIGITALes.  It consists of a cycle of five works for recorder and electronics co-composed by Dr Adkins, who is a performer and Professor of Experimental Electronic Music at the University of Huddersfield.

    He teamed up with Montréal-based Dr Terri Hron, a composer and a performer who specialises in the recorder, a centuries-old instrument that also takes its place in highly contemporary music.
