Jaw Box – World Premiere, Kansas City

Date: September 12, 2016
Time: 7:30 pm

Jaw Box – World Premiere

Saxophonist Geoff Landman performs the world premiere of my work, Jaw Box for solo soprano saxophonist, as part of a Guest Artist Recital at UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance in Kansas City on September 12th. Alongside works by Berio, Bach, Vasenna and Lazcano, this looks to be an epic display of saxophone execution. Jaw Box occupies a realm between pitch, unpitch, speech, and noise. All sounds are acoustic – produced by the solo soprano saxophonist, vocally, bodily, through the instrument, or in combinations.
