The Threshing Floor
for amplified duo (sax + percussion) and electronics
The Threshing Floor/ spotlights two performers facing one another, their choreographies intimately integrated between them, their instruments and the terms of their amplification. A rough undulating centre throws offshoots into a pale ring of sustained tones projected by speakers against the outer walls. These ebb back into slow swarms of controlled feedback, extending the boundaries of all bodies involved.
