“The Bailout” is a piece for a Saxophone quartet and live sound manipulation using the LiSa and JunXion software, developed by STEIM in Amsterdam. The piece is written by me and Ties Mellema and it is inspired by the history of the auto industry in Detroit and the “auto bailout” by the US government. It has premièred March 20th 2009 in a concert that I did with the Amstel Quartet in the Detroit Institute of Arts.
