The work is based on a live transformation of a recorded saxophone (Gianpaolo Antongirolami playing my Il domestico di Edgar). The spectral analysis of this transformation, which does not contain any perceivable reference to the sound source, determines the score for saxophones in ANTIDINAMICA. The performers can choose and change the metronome (quarter note from 20 to 120) on every page, as well as what and how many staves to play – there are 6 in each page – but within a set period (minimum 6 ‘, maximum 12’). In the remaining 4 ‘(maximum 6’) they continue improvising on what in their memory the score left.

The live electronics performer freely improvises on the parameters of an environment consisting of a 8 tracks filtered impulses convolution then sent to 4 multitaps delay with pitch transposition in the feedback.
