Hi all:

I was looking for a Noda piece for solo alto saxophone . I heard it two years ago and the two most important characteristcs were that the performer said a few japanese phrases and there were a lot of multiphonics, pretty much all the piece was based on multiphonics. I know It is not a lot of help, but I heard Improv. I, II and III, Mai and Phoenix and it is not one of those.
Any ideas, suggestions? or recordings..? I know if I hear it again I will be able to recognize it. Another hint is that the performer, an old friend of mine that somehow I can not contact anymore, had tendonitis at that moment so the piece does not call for anything "virtuosistic", it was more like an "effects" (?)piece.

Thanks!

Noda's Requiem is pretty much entirely multiphonics. It's generally soft, going from a tone of the multiphonic into the whole multiphonic, then back to that tone.
