'Untitled for Anne' is a game of power between the flute and the computer. The software is directly controlled by the acoustic input of the flute in an attempt to break down the traditional power of the composer. Control is in the hands of the player, but the computer can take over if not restrained properly. The work consist of notated and improvised music with live processing and sampling of the flute. No pre-recorded sample material is used in the performance of this piece.
