EAST OF THE CANE FIELDS
for solo harp
21 October 2001
Franziska Huhn, Harp
It is influenced by the cane field found in Boston’s Fenway Park. When blown by the wind, the canes move in such a way that produces a special visual effect, and a mysterious whistle. The flexibility of the canes makes their movement change constantly from one direction to the other. I translated this visual effect to sound and applied it to the harp. East of the Cane Fields was written for harpist Franziska Huhn.
