I Feel Fine

Guitar solo
Duration: 10 – 12 minutes

I Feel Fine takes its material from the iconic opening feedback note of the Beatles’ song “I Feel Fine”. It is a slow unfolding of this sound from the inside-out over the course of nearly 10 minutes. The performer can choose how long to stay on the repetitive figures, and the slightest shifts in timbre and harmony are the focus of the work.

I Feel Fine was written in the summer of 2013 for Mikkel Andersen.

Premiere: November 12-22, 2015
