My newest piece, Schattenspiel [Update, 12/4: now titled something golden in the night] for soprano saxophone and electronics, a preview of which you can hear above, will be premiered on Saturday 31 March at 4 p.m. by Haruka Inoue (on the right in the picture above) in IRCAM’s Espace de projection. The concert will also feature new works by my classmates Juan Arroyo, Keita Matsumiya, Vittorio Montalti, Marcin Stanczyk and Ying Wang. Schattenspiel features a visual element — a motorised sculpture — so come along not only to hear but also to see the music.
