01/27/2014 (Continuous Resonance) "Throat Singing" improvisation.

Neil Welch, Continuous Resonance Project

Date: 01/23/2014

Instrument: Tenor saxophone

Location: Home studio in Clinton, WA (Whidbey Island)

Performed acoustically


Throat singing technique with a Concert G fundamental.  I sang tones on and within the concert pitches D and C, all of which were below the G root.  I primarily used a single fingering, which was as follows:

(Left Hand) 1-2-3, Low Bb // (Right Hand) 2-3.  I also occasionally opened the Low Eb key, and Octaves keys in combination with this fingering as well.
