Throughout history composers have used music to depict their perception of the

refugee experience. This project expands upon this idea through the commission and

recording of four new works for saxophone. The compositions are Different Arks for solo

alto saxophone by John Secunde, Rubble/Resolve for alto saxophone and piano by Jared

Yackiw, Emerging Light for soprano saxophone and vibraphone by Alan Hankers, and

Unam aeternam for solo alto saxophone and stereo playback by Ashlee Busch. For each

work, this project provides performance guides, biographical contexts, program notes,

and recordings. I hope to encourage artists to discover and facilitate creative ways to

draw attention to migration around the world and contribute to the fight against racism

and xenophobia.
