Petrified, for baritone saxophone & electronics
After we could not play Petrified during the 2020 Electrocution Festival, I arranged a new version of the piece for baritone saxophone & live electronics. As soon as I sent it to saxophonist extraordinaire Stéphane Sordet, he was onboard to make a recording!
Stéphane recorded the saxophone part in Brest, while I adjusted and recorded the live electronics in Iowa City. After I sent him a mixed version he added video:
I'm humbled by the amount of work Stéphane put in this project. I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to perform it live with him!
The live electronics may be performed in different ways:
- a musician performs live electronics as designed and provided by the composer, or a variation thereof, in a duet with the saxophonist.
- a musician performs improvised live electronics in a duet with the saxophonist.
- the saxophonist performs by themselves using the live electronics as designed and provided by the composer, or a variation thereof.
- the saxophonist performs improvised live electronics at the same time as the instrumental part.
The score and Max patch are available for purchase.
