In Interjections, saxophones and machines form one single “sounding” body, whose organs share temporality, sonority and space, but can also remain autonomous. The title refers to interjection as a short, independent element inserted into musical discourse, or as an instrumental or digital interference that highlights or interrupts the dialogue between instruments and machines. Interjections is a game and a battle between the saxophonists and their instruments, between the score and the electronics, between sonic phenomena and time. The instrumental gestures are inspired by the sonority and temporality of the electronics, and vice versa.
