Tenor Saxophone Multiphonics Masterclass CD by David Pope |

David Pope For over a decade David Pope has been forging a unique style of saxophone performance and composition. His work with multiphonics is somewhat unprecedented, in that he combines aspects of jazz and contemporary concert music in a way that is abstract, but lyrical. He uses multiphonics as an integral part of the music, unfolding melody and harmony. His work is highly programmatic, dating back to his debut recording Soul of the Elephant (available from Open Loop Records at http://www.dornpub.com/openloop.html). In that tradition of storytelling, this masterclass opens with a composition depicting funeral rites (Exsequiae). The CD closes with a play-along version of the piece, with parts one and two in the left and right channel, respectively. |
