Towards White (1982)
Towards White for amplified bassoon and live-electronics was written in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, in Autumn and Winter 1982. Digital delay was relatively new technology, and this was one of the first pieces to use it in a "live" context. The piece requires considerable virtuosity from the bassoonist and high notes you will not find in any orchestration text.
