10/16/2015 Continuous Resonance Solo Project (documented on Bad Luck US tour) Las Cruces, NM

Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project Date: 10/16/2015 Location: Beside a tree in Las Cruces, New Mexico Instrument: Tenor saxophone Notes: (Documented while traveling in the Fall, 2015 Bad Luck duo national tour) This improvisation was documented next to a tree in the front yard of saxophonist Rhonda Taylor at 3:30am. Chris Icaisano and I played a show in Santa Fe, NM several hours earlier and drove through the night to Las Cruces to get a few hours sleep and begin a day of teaching early the next morning. *In the spirit of creating work within a series, in this case a collection of work drawn from experiences on the road, all improvisations I documented during the fall Bad Luck duo US/Canada tour are accompanied by images from Pierre Alechinsky paintings.* The image accompany today’s post by Alechinsky, from Plate IV from the portfolio Vulcanologies.
