THE GLISS ANGLAIS

This instrument was designed and made for me by Henry Dagg. It is a de/reconstruction of a
cor anglais. This de/reconstruction injects  instability and precarity into the new instrument’s response to gesture, breath and touch. It  frees me from the oboe’s restrictive keywork and extends the sonic landscape available to me.
You can hear me playing the gliss anglais in Sulaymaniah in the video below.
