Composers have recently integrated techniques proper to saxophone without mouthpiece attached to the neckpiece within their works. This doctoral project sheds light on the artistic possibilities, performance practice, and notational issues of these techniques.
This research essentially concentrates on the realization of fixed media electroacoustic music into aural reality, dealing with issues such as performance, interpretation, reproduction and correlation between compositional aesthetics and the performance situation. Consequently, the critical parameters (artistic and technical) of bringing a piece of fixed media music into sonic reality will be investigated.
