Neil Welch Continuous Resonance Solo Project 2016
Location: Practice Room C at South Whidbey High School. Langley, WA (Whidbey Island)
Instrument: Soprano saxophone
This improvisation explored a common pitch center with melodic actions occurring above and beneath it. I used primarily tempered pitches during this piece with occasional deviations into looping phases of overtones and multiphonics. The mid-register punctuations were created through flicking open the side G key, a key (at least to my knowledge) unique to more modern soprano saxophone exclusively.
