Sheefa Variations (2007)
Composer: Zack Settel
for saxophone quartet and live electronics

Sheefa variations is commissioned work for the Quasar Quartet.  The piece is among the first in a new series of the composer’s works exploring compositon and virtousity in an electronically augmented volumetric musical space.  The movement of the players on stage in relationship to their surrounding audio/musical environment is an essential part of the work ;  an optional image projection system may be added to display this « invisible» part of the performance and the interaction of the players within it.
