The debut album from Dionysus, Ali Wright and Dylan Ward, featuring music by living American composers for two saxophones. All works utilize the musical technique of "hocket", a "spasmodic or interrupted effect in medieval and contemporary music, produced by dividing a melody between two parts, notes in one part coinciding with rests in the other."
