for saxophone sextet (alto's)
Sixpack is a serie of pieces for six alto saxophones.
Also good playable for six soprano saxophones, six
tenors or even baritone saxophones.
It is also possible to double parts.
All pieces are written in a minimal music style. The melody lines are
always divided throughout the ensemble. This has the effect that there
is no ranking order in the ensemble.
Sixpack 1 begins with a chorale melody in which a 4 note melody
is exhibited. This melody or parts of it will emerge through the whole
piece. In the swinging second part the melody fragments are reduced
to only two notes
