Driftwood Box Puzzle

Driftwood Box Puzzle for alto saxophone, piano, and computer generated sound receives its premiere on Saturday, March 2nd at the North American Saxophone Alliance Regional Conference at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Richard Schwartz will be playing alto saxophone, and I will be playing piano.

The work intersperses free sections with tightly-wound components. The free sections have each instrument working through independent pitch cells moving at different rates, drifting in and out of “phase,” while the stricter sections unify the cells temporarily before a new “drift” begins.
