it has come to my attention
Instrumentation: solo saxophone and fixed media
“It Has Come to my Attention” is an electro-acoustic piece that melds the worlds of electronic sound and jazz-influenced improvisation. A saxophone soloist is set against an electronic backdrop made up of, among other things, a series of processed saxophone sounds. The saxophonist begins by imitating these sounds, and gradually moves towards a more traditional improvisation over a series of chord changes. As the piece progresses, these divergent ideas begin to overlap and create a new textural setting for the soloist to react to.
