How do we think in terms of wholes? Unifying Divisions is a social experiment where 17 saxophones divide into groups of 5 solo characters and 4 quartets, uniting to give the illusion of 1 instrument. The unification is achieved through the magnification of a single voice.
Instrumentation: 17 saxophones: 1 solo soprano, 1 solo alto, 4 altos (3 doubling on soprano), 2 solo tenors, 4 tenors, 1 baritone solo, 4 baritones (1 doubling on tubax).
Duration: 15 min.
