10/17/2014 (Solo Improvisation documented in Milwaukee, WI)

Neil Welch, Continuous Resonance Project
Date: 10/15/2014
Location: A park beside Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, WI
Instrument: Tenor saxophone


We drove with fantastic, clear weather during the first week of this Bad Luck tour.  Unfortunately the weather then turned and we were met with day after day of heavy rain across the the North-Central states. This morning there was finally a break from the rain, and before heading back out onto the road we decided to walk along the banks of Lake Michigan.  There were hundreds of geese resting in a park beside the lake and the air felt cool and clean.  I decided to grab my horn and improvise a piece near in this park.  I set up my mic in the crotch of a large Birch tree and recorded this quiet improvisation before heading back on the road towards Michigan.  Geese, cars and a large dog can be heard in the background.
