alto saxophone and stereo fixed media

duration 7’30”

The title Apparitions (2004) refers to the recurring saxophone sounds that appear in various forms throughout the accompaniment. These sounds are introduced as long, delicate tones that emerge from the soloist’s line. Further along in the piece, they appear as short, melodic phrases that subtlety taunt the soloist. These “ghost saxophones” become increasingly agitated and torment the soloist as the piece builds to its climax.  Eventually, the soloist is overcome by the accompanying texture of ferocious, growling saxophones. Apparitions was composed for saxophonist Michael Bovenzi for a performance at the 2004 North American Saxophone Alliance National Conference.
