Morehead: Event Horizon for Saxophone Quartet

Event Horizon is a one-movement work with many different tempi. It is structured in four sections: slow and mysterious; fast; lyrical; and a final jazz-based section using multiphonics to expand the coloristic range of the quartet. The title "Event Horizon" refers to the astronomical description of black holes in deep space: black holes are of an infinite density emitting no light into the universe (yet we have been able to determine their existence). Event Horizon was commissioned by the Donne in Musica Festival, Fiuggi, Italy, and was premiered in Italy in September 1998.
