The theme this week at Sound-In was, naturally, the 50th anniversary of the first manned moon landing. I decided to try a first of my own; cover the bell of my tenor sax with a foil pie plate to see how the sound and response might be changed…

After recording S&F&TR, I thought I'd try to play a bit differently to the frogs, more of a 'human' style. They seemed to get considerably more noisy so I recorded this. Submitted to Sound-in for 10-13/7/2019.

Took a walk up to the local creek to try playing with some late-night bullfrogs (about 10pm). Kept to just playing short bursts, as arhythmically as possible. Submitted to Sound-in for 10-13/7/2019.

An attempt at imitating the sounds of a basketball game using tenor sax, in honour of Toronto's victory in the NBA (now IBA?) championship series. Squeaking of shoes, bouncing of ball, occasional crowd cheers (least successful).

Another stretched segment, this time without any noise reduction or pitch change, but with a much finer resolution. The resemblance to a super-fast steam locomotive gave the title. Submitted to Sound-In for 29/5-1/6/2019.

Created from a few seconds of sound caused by three FM radios interfering with each other. Stretching, pitch-shifting and noise reduction gave this result. Submitted to Sound-In 29/5-1/6/2019.

Jaw harp processed through EHX Stereo Memory Man>Lexicon LXP-5>Zoom RFX-300. This sounds remarkably similar to part of a piece I recorded 35 years ago using a totally different set-up (Mini-Moog into time lag accumulator).

Not at all what it seems. Sounds were created by putting a small dynamic mic onto a little battery-powered amp to create feedback. This was then modulated by playing extremely high notes on a clarinet (using lower teeth to adjust reed pressure…read more
