saxophone improvisations for island life, Part 3:

The bugle boy and albert

December 2010
This project was made possible by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Swing Space program; Space in Building 110 on Governors Island is donated by The Trust For Governors Island.

The piece is best experienced in the mind of the ideal reader/viewer who reads the story (approx. 8,000 words) while sitting in the couch in this environment as the video and soundtrack play.

The Bugle Boy and Albert

After a future wartime catastrophe, a man finds himself the sole survivor of a biological agent that wipes out the population but leaves his world intact. In his isolation and search for answers, he encounters a bugle boy from the civil war who insists on being taught the bugle calls. Even though this extinct form of military communication is no longer necessary in a depopulated world, and the boy can already compose beautiful melodies of his own making, the man, grateful for any companion, agrees to help if only the boy can find him a saxophone, the instrument of his own youth. In this Little Prince-like story, companionship, history, magic and music bind these characters as they journey through the no longer necessary rigors of military music education and learn improvisation in a world where the rules no longer apply.
