01/24/2016 (Continuous Resonance Solo Improvisation)

Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project

Date: 01/24/2016
Location: Thornton Creek House. Seattle, WA
Instrument: Tenor saxophone


I recorded this improvisation after spending about 2 hours listening to Tibetan Monk chanting. I explored the horn for some time in search of am of assimilation of timbral similarity to the recording I was listening to, which included charting, percussion instruments, bells other ambient room sounds. In particular, I wanted to see if I could capture some semblance of the deep, meditative spirit I felt while listening to this music.
