The chosen instrumentation will not be taken into account, as long as it can be performed by Klexos (maximum of 5 performers, 4 of them saxophonists and 1 composer-multimedia artist). Therefore, by way of example, duo works (saxophone duo, performer duo), trios, quartets and quintets of different characteristics with or without multimedia elements are accepted.
