12 Moons solo saxophone project Day 8
Instrument: Tenor Saxophone
Location: Performance Auditorium at Chief Seatlth/Denny Middle school in Seattle, WA
The acoustics in the auditorium at Chief Sealth high school are outstanding for solo music. The natural reverb paired with the construction of the room create amazing pockets of sound activity with certain saxophone gestures. For this improvisation, I worked with various slap tonging techniques, and overblowing the horn while taking in a great deal of mouthpiece in my embouchure. My mic location was positioned in the back of the room, and I moved from side to side in the 50+ foot stage to capture as much of the room acoustics as possible.
