Redror is an explosive piece with a great virtuosity demanded of the performers. From whisper quiet multiphonics through to tongue slaps and extreme register playing, there is little respite for them during its 14 minutes.
Written in a post serial style with rhythm as well as pitch strictly controlled, Redror is probably the last piece I composed with such excessive rigour. From 1989 I was beginning to look for opportunity to add improvisatory elements to my music as one means of moving on to new modes of expression as a composer.
Instrumentation: Alto saxophone, percussion.
Duration: 13 min.
