A bunch of screaming kids out the back, so I decided to get out the horn and honk along. Used some noise reduction to get rid of some droning background, which caused a rather nice ringing sound. Chopped out a fair bit of resulting silence too.

First attempt at running a Mini-Moog through a Cry Baby wah-wah pedal. Sound setting was pink noise, with modulation added to the filter about half way through.

Trombone, with a foil pie plate wrapped over the bell as a sort of ringing mute. Got the idea from seeing Michael Snow do it with a trumpet back in the '70s. Submission to Sound-In, 14/5/2020

Ok, this now relatively short piece started out much longer; almost two hours. The sounds were obtained by placing two contact mics at different points around the rim of a circular light fixture in my apartment ceiling to get sounds created by…

James Bailey did a solo tenor sax improv for this weekend's Sound-In event. I dug the space in it and decided to add some spacial lap steel to it.

Thanks, Bill, but as you've probably noticed, with my style of playing a perfect - or eve proper - embouchure is not all that critical. Either that or my horn is very forgiving. Since I'm not trying to play particular notes or melodies, anything that doesn't quite work as intended merely becomes part of the piece in a different way.

nice.. don't lose that embouchure, I have lost mine. I am not willing to put the time in again to get it back.. since I have had a trombone again..--- you know it is not that I can't play the trombone .. it is that the sound is not like that of someone playing with an.. embouchure -- nice whisper like effects toward the end..

I work strictly in improvisation, on whatever sound-making device finds its way into my hands. Anything tuneful is usually accidental, though I do on rare occasions manage limited success when trying it deliberately. Electronics are a frequent component but there is also a fair amount of strictly acoustic material.
