Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project 2016
Location: Main performance hall at Chief Sealth International High School
Instrument: Tenor saxophone
To record this improvisation I placed my mic in the back of the large hall, and I played about 50 feet away from it with my horn pointed towards a wall. The room captured a wide array of sounds from the horn during this piece, including percussive key clacking, lower register difference tones, and layer upon layer of polyphonic chords. This work was inspired by and dedicated to there Seattle percussionist Evan Woodle and his recent lengthy work for solo drums.
