Dracones Nursery for Alto Saxophone and Live ElectroAcoustics
Dracones, the race of giant, toothed serpentine monsters from Greek mythology (for example the Hydra and Hesperian Dragon, the hundred headed dragon which guarded the golden apples of the Hesperides included in Hercules lore,) have a reputation, as adults, of being large and ferocious. This interactive work explores a mind thought of the existence of these monsters as babies and a place to take care of them.
This piece requires MaxMSP, a saxophone microphone. Optional AirPlay foot pedal can be used to advance through interactive electroacoustic sections.
