Program Notes
A self-organising electronic system gives birth to a music organism, in communication with the saxophonist’s detailed score. During the concert, the music organism will be born, will be developed and will then die. The emerging organism is a unique sound result, as all sounds and all sound processing derive from the present space and time.
