Initially, my* doctoral research was motivated by my interest in real-time electronics as a method of extending my practice as a saxophonist. What kinds of musical works could be produced if the electronics were treated as a ‘part of’ the saxophone? I began working with composer Adrián Artacho in early 2014, which brought up a new set of questions about the composer-performer relationship. From these arose a series of additional questions, which we investigated over the next four years, culminating in my dissertation, A Performer-centric Approach to Extending the Saxophone with Live Electronics, and the accompanying piece of music, aubiome (2018). In 2001 we have settled into working as a duo, work as a duo, exploring a deeply collaborative working method in which the roles of composer and performer are blurred.
