02/20/2016 (Continuous Resonance Solo Improvisation)

Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project 2016

Date: 02/20/2016
Location: A bedroom in my brother’s apartment in San Francisco, California
Instrument: Tenor saxophone


I used the initial melodic statement for this improvisation as a recurring figure throughout the piece, returning to it almost as a point of strength that phrases could build and decay from. The improvisation was recorded at dusk just after arriving at my brotherâs apartment in San Francisco. I was in a calm and reflective mood and wanted to capture this spirit during the improvisation.
