about

I had sent Neil an electronic ‘backing track’ to improvise on, with the idea to keep my part intact as the spine of this new piece. But once I received Neil’s recording, things turned out differently. While toying around with his saxophone improvisation, I noticed it was full of fantastic details, and wanted to emphasize these. I tried overlaying looped parts, with wonderful results. So the original idea went out the window, and I decided to solely work with Neil’s improvisation.

I approached ‘Tides’ as a continuous stream of sound, maybe comparable to Brian Eno’s ‘Thursday Afternoon’ or ‘Neroli’, but far less soothing. The 38 minutes on this release can be seen as a chop from an infinite, miasmic flow of smelting saxophone phrases.
