Abstract ?Hugo?s Hunt:? a Project by Carter Datz, Forrest Beck, and Janelle Walker Almost every continent has stories containing the horn and various percussion instruments, used for music or signaling purposes. In 1700?s Europe, the horn was used on fox hunts by the elite aristocracy. Projection of the voice was limited, so the horn was used to sound commands using melodies to mean different things, as a more audible melodic morse code. Composers wanted to use the fanfare-like nature of horn calls but horns had limited range. The natural horn emerged as a result, using extended techniques. As Janelle Walker discovered, percussion instruments have evolved as well. Carter Datz recreates the majesty of the horn calls of the 1700?s using a natural horn and various percussion instruments in a composition titled: ?Hugo?s Hunt? manipulating the sounds of the instruments so the piece is firmly rooted in the 21st century.
