No Disintegrations for alto sax and live electronics (2010)

This composition is about a blocked melody. A simple lyrical line is trapped within clouds of shattered fragments and textures. As the composition unfolds, the disintegrated fragments which encumber the melodic line begin to fall away until only the melody remains. The title is, as you probably know, a quotation of Darth Vader’s instructions to Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back.
