A Lover's Discours: The Other's Body




The other's body was divided: on one side, the body proper -skin, eyes- tender, warm; and on the other side, the voice-abrubt, reserved, subject to fits of remoteness, a voice which did not give what the body gave. Or further: on one side, the soft, warm, downy, adorable body, and on the other, the ringing, well-formed, worldly voice- always the voice. 


This piece is the first of a continuous series of solos and duos I am writing based on Roland Barthes' book A Lover's Discourse. Both Bass Saxophone and Double Bass are able to cover an expansive intervallic range, with entirely different characters in their different registers. I am using these characteristics as they also define the timbral and dynamical shifts of the sounds. The behavior of the piece is hidden in the failure of the instruments in going beyond their limits and the agitation it causes. The sounds are imprisoned in the physicality of the instruments and musicians' bodies, but there is no life after their emancipation either.
