11/21/2015 Continuous Resonance Solo Improvisation

Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project

Date: 11/21/2015
Location: Thornton Creek House. Seattle, WA
Instrument: Tenor saxophone/Chest beating


During this improvisation I explored beating my chest while playing, or chest beating on its own. The beating helped to alter the pitch stability while I played but also added a natural textural element to the sound spectrum. A component of improvisation is also the ambient noise of Thornton Creek, as heard from my winder, and slight melodic overtones from tv music off in the living room of the house.
