A study in vortices, attractors, spin, centripetal forces. The saxophones, ideally arrayed in circular fashion around the audience, perform interlocking gestures that sit on the boundary between melody and timbre. The form is conceived to allow only two tutti sections: but the emotional force of a sudden envelopment of sound is only possible if the listener is first deprived of 360-degree stimuli.
Commissioned and premiered by the Vienna Saxophonic Orchestra
06 Dec 2011: Performed by the Vienna Saxophonic Orchestra at the Auditorium de la Cité de musique et de la danse, in Strasbourg
