Luc Marcel created a sensation with his music for the spectacular theatre-piece Wind for saxophone quartet, modern dance ensemble and a gigantic inflatable plastic rectangular bubble the size of the entire platform that is danced-on to start, danced-in (with the dancers holding flashlights) for the middle part and danced-under for the closing sections. The theme of Wind and the motion of air gave rise to the choice of the saxophone quartet. The saxophones with their built-in megaphones to amplify soft vocal sounds translate the concept of wind and air from the choreographer through the vibrating columns of air which distinguish the saxophones from all other instruments.
