A Palimpsest

a Microconcerto for Alto Saxophone and Percussion Ensemble
2014  ⤥  8'


Commissioned by the International Saxophone Symposium and Competition (ISSAC) and Columbus State University, A Palimpsest is based on my own Nostalgic Synchronic Etude #5, titled "Wallumrod," which itself is inspired by a particular voice-leading move by the Norwegian "jazz" composer Christian Wallumrod, and I'm quite sure his voice-leading move is a misuse of something similar from the early Baroque, in some way. In any case, this particular version gradually erases itself.
