Vortex 1

Composer: Benjamin Thigpen
Saxophone quartet (SATB) and electronics

We are right at the start, do you see.
As though before everything. With
a thousand and one dreams behind us and
no act. 

I can imagine no knowledge holier
than this:
that you must become a beginner.
Someone who writes the first word after a centuries-long dash.

 Rainer Maria Von Rilke
Notes on the Melody of Things
