07/18/2015 Continuous Resonance Solo Improvisation

Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project

Date: 07/18/2015
Location: The Ravenna Woods at the annual Secret Forest Show. Seattle, WA
Instrument: Tenor saxophone


Today is the Secret Forest Show, the annual performance which takes place deep in the woods inside Ravenna Park. This concert is staged each year as a collaborative event between bassist/composer John Teske and myself. This improvisation explored the deconstruction of my instrument in which I explored the horn in its fully constructed form, and eventually began pulling apart the instrumentâfirst taking off the neck, then the mouthpiece, leaving finally just my voice itself.
