My Dad forwarded me this link last week. Understandably he was blown away by it being a saxophonist himself. I watched it, then rewatched it and watched it again! It features Colin Stetson, an American saxophonist who has played with Arcade Fire, Tom Waits, Feist, Laurie Anderson, LCD Soundsystem, The National, David Byrne and Lou Reed. Colin has also released solo recordings on saxophones, clarinets, cornet, french horn and flute.
As can be seen from this video, Colin’s technique is remarkable and he achieves his sound without loops or overdubbing. He uses circular breathing (given that he’s performing on a bass saxophone I have no idea how he doesn’t pass out) and also taps the keys on the sax to create percussion sounds. Truly phenomenal. Check it.
