Baltakas on Saxordionphonics:

Vykintas Baltakas with Marcus Weiss, Teodoro Anzellotti, Emilio Pomàrico and the WDR SO Köln	at the world première of Saxordionphonics.The work is founded on two structural principles. The first is a strictly rhythmical construct of two to three permuting notes which paces through the entire piece, forming a structural basis, with temporal distensions and condensations, dynamic and colorific variations. The other is a freer level which reacts musically to the first. It is especially scored for solo instruments; it is here where the musical development takes place, the relationship between the levels playing a dramaturgical part. They influence each other, the stronger one transforming the weaker one, when they are not actually rivalling.
