Tides 38:01


I had sent Neil an electronic backing track to improvise on, with the idea to keep my part intact as the 'spine' of this long-form piece. But once I received his recording, things turned out differently. While playing around with his saxophone improvisation, I noticed it was full of fantastic details, full of life. I wanted to emphasize this and began to create loops from different fragments of the saxophone recording. Once I started to combine these loops, piling up layers, it seemed to create an entire world - an eerie but beautiful world.


released December 1, 2015

Tides was constructed by Rutger Zuydervelt using looped phrases culled from a tenor saxophone improvisation by Neil Welch.
Mastered by Marlon Wolterink. Released on cdr by Confront.
