this is syzygy
is a collective of saxophone players who perform and thus promote new music and established contemporary works from A to X (Andriessen to Xenakis).
They perform with other people and machines that aren't saxophones.
They play old music that once sounded new, transcribed from the chamber music canon.
They began at the Frontiers & Andriessen Festival in Birmingham, where they performed Louis Andriessen’s Facing Death.
