Eric Honour
New Music for Saxophone and Electronics
Tour 2009

In 2009, composer/saxophonist Eric Honour is touring Europe and the USA with a challenging program of new music for saxophone and electronics. The works explore the outer edges of saxophone performance technique, from the exquisitely quiet microtones of Lou Bunk's Luna to the screams of Christopher Biggs's Exterminate All the Brutes and from the graceful lyricism of Ed Martin's Apparitions and William Coogan's Fantasy for Saxophone to the virtuosic demands of Luigi Ceccarelli's Neuromante and Zachary Crockett's Fight to Flow Between. As well, the program features a variety of compositional approaches, from the chance-infused canons of Karlheinz Essl's Sequitur VII to the improvisation of Scott McLaughlin's Whitewater and the folk-music inspiration of D. Edward Davis's minimalist sugar baby. Jazz and popular music inspire Massimo Biasioni's Il Cortile di Charlie and Honour's own composition Phantasm.
