Chatter, Babble, and Yak


Saxophone Quartet


Dec 06, 2018


The main idea behind this piece was to build it from motives that imitated the motion and contour of human speech. At the beginning of the piece, I pictured the tenor, alto, and soprano saxes as students chatting with one another at the start of a class, and the baritone sax as the teacher trying desperately to control the class as they continuously whisper and joke with one another.
