Labyrinth was composed and first performed by the Northern Saxophone Quartet. It could be described as a minimal composition in that it uses a minimal amount of material and is structured using processes. However, it differs from mainstream minimalism in that it deconstructs these structural processes. Often the music starts midway through a compositional system, then it diverts from it into another process, only to find its way back at a later stage in a labyrinthine manner. Much of the material which is developed is not my own! Very small innocuous fragments of jazz influenced music by other 21st century composers are paraphrased and developed through the piece.
