A Major Third Consists of 9 Different Notes (For 30 Saxophones)

The major third is a keystone in western music theory and is artificially high pitched according to the tempered scale. In this composition the major third is approached from a microtonal perspective offering the major third as a saturated interval.

This work was commissioned by the Nordic Saxophone Festival and was performed by 30 saxophonists from across Europe in March 2018.
