Composer Richard Barnard
Title Electric Tango
Year 2004
Instrumentation Saxophone Quartet, Tape
Mins 9-10
Other information Saxophone Quartet (2 Altos, Tenor, Bari.) and Tape. A piece for live performance with electronics creating an atmospheric and virtuosic piece based on Tango dance rhythms and virtuosic gestures. The electronic part is constructing completely from live samples of the saxophone material used in the piece. Sampling multiphonics and extended techniques, the electronics extend the sonic possibilities of the instruments to create a huge range of textures and percussive rhythms. The overall effect of the piece is a dramatic dialogue between live and synthetic sound, raw dance music and dream-like recollections.
