Instrumentation: for orchestra (4(pic).4(ebcl and bcl).4(ca).5(cbn)/5.6.4(cbtbn)/2perc/13.5.4.2) baritone saxophone solo, live electronic and sorround sound installation

The sound shadow:
A (sound) shadow of the soloists live saxophone sound is created by the live electronic. The live part of the solo is not broadcast electronically, this means the original sound can only be heard coming from one direction. The sound shadow, on the other hand, is played over as many speakers as is possible in the room housing the audience and should not be heard to emanate from any particular direction; every listener should find themselves in the midst of the sound. The concert hall becomes thereby a part of the whole sound concept of the composition
The installation is a three-second window in a sound world deep-seated within our culture. The sound of a car driving by in the rain is played in the room housing the audience.
