Shackle Checkerboard 2

Alto Saxophone and Interactive Electronics


This piece is dedicated to Matthew Gelband with a formulaic poem:

mega-bat fly free
Hard enough to hit the ball

This piece presents a return to an older piece that played on the thresholds of unplayability by a single instrumentalist. This new version treats the point of unplayability as a threshold at which the directions of the piece become morphed and distorted. The electronics serve as a recalculated constant accompaniment that refocuses the original intentions of the work.
