Program Notes

The title, "Concrete Playground" brings to mind not an actual playground kids
may play on, but a dirty, abandoned structure that could be repurposed. Much
like a blank canvas, this structure can be recreated for anyone's use; perhaps
a drained swimming pool becomes a skate park, a cracked wall becomes a mural
for a street artist, or even broken ruins become a battle ground for paint ball
enthusiasts.This piece seeks to capture the dirtiness of such a structure, in this
case both the sound of the saxophone and octotonic scale, and re-envision them
in a fun and exciting way. Just enjoy yourself and prepare for a wild ride!
