05/17/2014 (Continuous Resonance Solo Improvisation)

Neil Welch, Continuous Resonance Project

Date: 05/17/2014

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

Instrument: Tenor saxophone

Performed Acoustically


During this improvisation, I placed a harmon mute inside the bell, allowing it rattled as I clacked against the keys.  I also used a new technique during this piece, which included knocking my knuckles against the side and rim of the bell, or alternating knocking while striking the body of the horn with the tips of my fingers.
