Detail

Description

A micro-opera for three "characters": Dove (saxophonist), Watcher (dancer), and Portable Darkness (stage-hand).

The saxophonist's musical vocabulary alternates between  spontaneous, jazz-inflected phrases and abstract, quasi-minimalist patterns - linked by the sound of footsteps, as the performer moves from side to side across the stage.
