The sound of the saxophone has been processed by computer to create a dark and exaggerated sound world. The live saxophone spars with this new environment, sometimes aligning itself with, and sometimes divorcing itself from the electronic backdrop. Throughout, however, the instrument has only been reacting to a reflection of itself.
The tape part of this work was composed in the University of Auckland EMS and is comprised of computer modifications of a single saxophone gesture. This work won first prize in The University of Auckland Composition Prize Competition in l991 and received a "Mentione d'Onore" in the 16th Concorso Internationale "Luigi Russolo", Varese, Italy in 1994. It has been frequently performed in New Zealand, Australia, USA and Europe.
