Aram Shelton composed three minimalist works for an octet of winds and strings via loop pedal back in 2002. For this concert, he’ll re-imagine the first of these, Octet, for saxophone quartet and processing via Max, bringing the piece close to its initial form. Each saxophone will be live-sampled, and the processed sound will be distributed through the space at CNMAT. Shelton will be joined by Jacob Zimmerman, Ritwik Barnerji and Cory Wright. They may also play “A Rare Thing” (Shelton, 2003), originally played by the 774th Street Quartet (Bloody Murder). To hear some of Shelton's past electroacoustic works, please visit
