Synchronic Shades, for Tenor Saxophone and iPod performer, by Benjamin Day Smith

Here is a fun piece that I premiered with the composer, Benjamin Day Smith, at the North American Saxophone Alliance in March and then performed again at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in May. Ben gives a wonderful description of the piece on his website (there is a video recording on this page that captures the piece well). Many thanks to Ben for designing such a spectacular playground for us to romp around in!
