Two By Eight
soprano saxophone, bassoon, electric guitar, piano, drum set, violin, cello, contrabass (2009)
Espace Guinguette, Vevey, Switzerland
Duration: 2 minutes
Commissioned by: Compagnie CH.AU
Premiere: January 24, 2010
When Compagnie ch.AU approached me about this project, for which they were commissioning several composers to write two minute works, I wondered what could really be accomplished with eight instruments in only two minutes. As it turns out, a whole lot of energy can be packed in 120 seconds!
