rōnin phasing

probes a multidimensional orchestral conception channeled through the limits of a solo wind instrument: alto saxophone. Independent melodic strains, each voicing distinct rhythms, sound simultaneously. Some very different sounding conceptual parallels to this polymelodirhythmic orientation might be heard in Bach’s solo violin works, in kora music, mantuno or the musics of the pygmy forest peoples; but in addition to this, rōnin phasing explores the possibilities of multidirectional thinking (whether concurrent or consequential) that’s accessible through solo improvisation.
