John Devitt

About John Devitt: Irish born flautist living and working in the Netherlands. Studied flute with Prof. Doris Keogh at The Royal Irish Academy of Music
in Dublin, and later continued studying flute and improvisation with Dick Gout, Ferdinand Povel, Herb Geller and Dick de Graaf at the Rotterdam Conservatory. I've played with various jazz and jazz-rock groups as well as playing tenor sax in a
rock band for a while; in two flute quartets (mostly classical repertoire) and in the Blauwdruk Ensemble which was formed
to perform the works of contemporary Dutch composer Nico Huijbregts. At present, besides teaching flute, I'm experimenting
with creating frameworks for improvisation using computer based programs and sound loops and recording these pieces
at my own Overloop Studio in Nijmegen.
I'm fortunate to have been selected to participate "virtually" in the multimedia performances of Christopher Hedge and the Magnetic Poets at the Piazza Solferino during the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino with a piece on alto flute.
My latest album of pieces is entitled "Afar", and is available through iTunes, Amazon.com, e-music etc.
