Puhpohwee (solo saxophone)
Meaning "the force which causes mushrooms to push up through the Earth overnight" Puhpohwee is my reflection on the nature of indigenous language and its influence over our perception of the world. Neil will open the evening with a performance of this 15 minute long, highly technical solo saxophone piece. The work makes generous use of Neil’s signature split tone and multiphonic colors.
