2017

Year:

Instrumentation:

Alto Saxophone and Electronics (Max Patch)

Duration:

9'45''

Description:

'Expansion' takes the listener on a journey from acoustic sound into electroacoustic sound. Opening with an expressive solo saxophone, the electronics subtly begin to mimic the soloist and eventually form a flowing texture over which the saxophone explores playful melodies. The texture continues to expand throughout the piece, culminating in the final wash of shimmering electronic colours.

Notes:

Composed for Sam Weller. Premiered at Konzertprojekt’s ‘Light Qualities’ as part of Vivid 2019.
