Edgar Barroso – IOD

Iod is the Greek root for violet. Dedicated to the saxophonist Xelo Giner, Iod searches the relationship between the electronics and the saxophone that is focused on highlighting sounds from the instrument, and extend them as fas as timbre and dynamics is concerned. The outline of the piece is planned so that the temporal distance between the interactions between the saxophone and electronics are actually quite short. The strategy to achieve this relationship in the piece to compose it as a piece of piano, saxophone which the right hand and the electronics that represent the left hand. In this way the different interactions between the saxophone and electronics create lines and counterpoint relations that are constantly talking to each other.

This patch was done in collaboration with programmer Matteo Sistisette (Italy).
