Say Nothing

14 saxophones / narrators:  3 soprano, 4 alto, 4 tenor, 3 baritone

Program Notes:

SAY NOTHING, for fourteen saxophones, was written for Carrie Koffman and the Hartt School Saxophone department. In performance, the performers are to form a ring around the audience, which helps to communicate a seemingly fractured narrative structure. The piece focuses largely on oppositional formal elements, developed by changing sets of rules. The result is a theatrical presentation involving disparate elements.
