02/02/2016 (Continuous Resonance Solo Improvisation 2 of 2)

Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project 2016

Date: 02/02/2016
Location: Main performance hall at Chief Sealth International High School. Seattle, WA
Instrument: Tenor saxophone

Notes: Improv 2 of 2

I recorded this improvisation during a morning of extreme frustration. I mistakenly deleted a number of improvisations from the month of January while working on my computer before practicing/recording today. I felt almost in a state of mourning as I recorded this piece and a second improvisation.

While improvising this piece I tried to create layers of pointillist melodic activity that were intentionally imbalanced. I want some layers to rise of higher than others all the while maintain a drone beneath.
