Unifying divisions : for 17 saxophones / Nirmali Fenn.

Library shelf no. 785.8719/FEN 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

How do we think in terms of wholes? Unifying Divisions is a social experiment where 17 saxophones divide into groups of 5 solo characters and 4 quartets, uniting to give the illusion of 1 instrument. The unification is achieved through the magnification of a single voice.
