Neil Welch, Continuous Resonance Project
Date: 06/17/2014
Location: Performance Hall at Chief Sealth High School. Seattle, WA
Instrument: Tenor saxophone
Performed Acoustically

This improvisation was recorded between teaching my students this afternoon. In the final moments of this recorded work I paused to consider whether the piece was finished, and it was at this very moment that a student interrupted me in the hall by walking on stage and calling out my name. This helped to seal my decision to stop.
