07/20/2015 (Continuous Resonance Solo Improvisation)

Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project

Date: 07/20/2015
Location: Thornton Creek House. Seattle, WA
Instrument: Tenor saxophone


As has been the case for weeks on end, this afternoon the heat is blistering with temperatures well into the 80’s. I decided to record a piece that utilized a small fan which I pulled from my window sill and placed up against my bell. During this improvisation I explored opening closing keys on my horn to adjust the pitch of the fan, pitches which resonated inside my horn.

The image accompanying today’s post shows the fan used during this improvisation.
