Nuevas perspectivas en torno al saxofón. De la exploración sonora a la composición.
New perspectives on the saxophone. From sonic exploration to composition.
Investigation of new technical resources for acoustic instruments helps to create many additional sonic material possibilities. Such resources, subsequently classified and monitored, can offer a new approach to the instrument. Currently, the use of novel techniques has opened up a field of multiple possibilities for both players and composers.
There have throughout history been examples such as those originating with the violinist Joseph Joachim and Brahms, or the clarinetist Anton Stadler and Mozart, demonstrating how the relation between composer and performer in the search for new sound possibilities may foster a broadening of interpretative resources and redefine instrumental writing. At present, in the saxophone field, such interactions have generated many manuals, e.g. Jean-Marie Londeix (1989), Daniel Kientzy (1982, 2002) or Marcus Weiss and Giorgio Netti (2010). All deal with various technical aspects, more or less developed and systematised, but their common final aim is to provide practical results allowing saxophonists and composers to develop new sonorous possibilities.
The aim of New perspectives on the saxophone. From sonic exploration to composition is to offer different technical approaches, not dealt with previously, to give form to different sonic possibilities for six different types of saxophone, while also putting forward a classification of multiphonic sounds for the sopranino and bass saxophones.
As a result of this search, the composer Alberto Posadas has written a cycle of six works with the title Veredas for each of the saxophones considered, which will be intimately linked to this text.
