Driftwood Box Puzzle
Instrumentation: alto saxophone, piano and fixed media
Driftwood Box Puzzle mixes structured improvisatory musical figures with strictly notated sections to create contrasting textures juxtaposed with one another. The resulting form of such interactions may be analogous to a labyrinthine kind of musical game in which the instruments and electronics wind around each other in order to find a “way out.”
Intervals I is recorded by saxophonist Richard Schwartz and pianist Philip Schuessler on the Centaur release entitled Embers (CRC 3385), available on streaming services and as a compact disc.
