This piece is an exploration of the varying ways in which human and technological perception can understand reality. Waves Break Aural Shores was written using various spectral analyses of the sound of the ocean in Puerto Marqués, in the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Each analysis utilizes a specific resolution, register and loudness threshold, which result in different music notations and instrumental techniques mapped to different categories of waves based on their intensity or amplitude. This leads to the notion of different versions of reality (waves) through the multiplicity and variability of perception (aural shores). Underlying the technique and theory behind the piece, my attempt is to translate the breath and pulse of the breaking waves, to reach inside the heart of the ocean’s vastness. In order to portray such a notion, the saxophone quartet shares the continuum of the ocean’s pulse, contracting and expanding, ebbing and flowing, getting quieter and louder, corresponding in time with the breaking waves of the original sound model of the shore.
