Amygdala - flute, live processing
The amygdala is an essential part of the brain that regulates emotional memory and response. It can directly affect the motivation and drive of a live being, alter the body's heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate. Although the amygdala can also be responsible for balancing aggression and calmness, this piece is specifically inspired by its involvement in stress and fear responses. The flute part is processed live with a mobile device and occasionally plays over processed pre-recorded short improvisations on different instruments.
