Stereoscope (saxophone duo of Olivia Shortt and Jacob Armstrong) is premiering Shannon’s piece written specifically for them called “Unconscious Conflict” on Thursday June 23, 2016. The piece, for alto saxophone, baritone saxophone, and voice evokes the constant battle between the Id and the Super-ego (dueling saxophones) while the Ego (voice) is caught in the middle of an unconscious conflict. Original text for the piece was written by Jay Vazquez.
I There exists an unconscious, the invisible puppet master
II The Id demands and the Super-ego punishes
III The neurotic Ego is caught in the middle of an unconscious conflict
