04/04/2015 Continuous Resonance Solo Improvisation


Date: 04/04/2015
Location: Edmonds, WA
Instrument: Tenor saxophone


Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of seeing Meredith Monk’s new theatre work “On Behalf of Nature.” This is the first opportunity I’ve had to see her live, and her spirit moved me that day. She pleaded with me, begged me, scolded me, and showed me. This improvisation is inspired by her vocal work, both from this concert and all the times I’ve been lucky enough to sit in reflection and experience it on recording.
