Work for saxophone. For New Art/New Music & Moody Center for the Arts' installation of Josiah McElheny's work, Island Universe.
I am interested in the idea of a music that explores different layers of space and time. A constantly emerging, seemingly continuous stream of activity is explored at different levels; from afar, where intense energy, color, and light blur the object into a unified whole, and from up close, where particles swirl past the observer in a pointillistic flutter of activity.
This composition takes into consideration the resonant acoustics of the Brown Foundation Inc.'s Gallery in Moody Center for the Arts, and the unique technologies surrounding the saxophone. The work relies on the performer’s perception of space; their visual perception of the notation and their aural perception of space.
The work was first performed by Patrick W. Lenz.
