Alto saxophone

Kilkul (Derailed) was written between 2008 and 2009. The Hebraic term "Kilkul" can also refer to spiritual distress. At the beginning of the composition, the motivic elements disintegrate, while aspects of their microtonal basis and their harmonic spectra are gradually emancipated. At the same time, the musician "recovers" from a state of panic and discovers the fundamental source of sound production: breathing.

I am very grateful to Mathieu Leclair for all the help and inspiration provided during the creation of this piece.
