In THAT ALLOW THE LOWEST LAYER THROUGH, the flute is an ear for
listening, an eye for seeing, or a mouth for speaking with an other voice. Huckabay and Booth explore the ute as a resonant chamber, or “room”, that modulates sound and light. In their collaborative composition, the
flute is prepared with an internal loudspeaker wired to a computer. The signal is muted, altered, modied, and controlled by the flute's various possible openings. The screenprint is adapted from a photograph created by inserting a roll of 35mm color film into the bass flute and exposing it to light by opening and closing the keys.
