Arbor I-V was commissioned by saxophonist Nick Zoulek to be presented at a concert of contemporary saxophone repertoire in the spring of 2011. These miniatures have been designed to serve either as transitional material between other pieces or as a larger standalone piece. In keeping with the spirit of the original concert, the music for these multimedia pieces was derived solely from recordings of saxophone sounds (played by Nick). The visual elements and overall aesthetic were inspired by a single day shooting video at the UW-Madison Arboretum.
