fuse for saxophone and percussion (2019)
Commissioned by and written for Popebama (Erin Rogers, saxophone; Dennis Sullivan, percussion), fuse is a controlled aleatory composition that explores the idea of fusing different timbral materials into one entity. The performers are given non-pitched, notational but sometimes graphical rhythmic guidance in a timed improvisation. They are also given the freedom to choose the specific saxophone and percussion instruments, while amplification or live electronics can be added as an augmentation as well. Each performing duo will eventually find their own way to “fuse” the materials.
