Over the past few years I’ve been exploring a new (at least to me) method of articulation on the horn that uses triple-tonguing by moving my tongue in a careful pattern that alternates again striking the reed with the tip of my tongue, followed by the roof of the mouth, and finished towards the center of my tongue. I then moved away from this stiff articulation and began incorporating the contrasting element of pliable pitch regions.
