↑ It seems that playing the saxophone is essentially the rearangement of a limited number of notes into patterns with some sort of understanding that these patterns are in some way related to meaning. This is an attempt at a meaningless but systematic approach to the instrument. Disregarding the possibilities of altered tone production, timbre, volume, attack and decay this piece imposes a simple system that employs every note within the range of the baritone, tenor and alto saxophones. Each ascending tone is faded in at five second intervals and then faded out in the same order after a few minutes leading to a dense microtonal structure in the middle of the piece where the different tones and overtones interact with each other. This piece is best appreciated when played loud. The listener can derive/impose meaning onto the piece or not as they see fit.
