March 16, 2016 Ulrich Krieger

In March Soundwaves welcomed saxophonist/composer Ulrich Krieger to present his massive set of pieces for tenor saxophone and electronics entitled “Universe.”It has four parts, each approximately one hour long, each using a different approach to the instrument: “ReSpace” is for saxophone-controlled feedback, “RAW” for electric saxophone and pedals, “Quantum” for amplified saxophone, and “Cosmos” for saxophone alone. The first two have been recorded for a new double-CD on the XI (eXperimental Intermedia) label, whose back catalog appears on DRAM. Krieger discussed the entire series, played excerpts from the CD, demonstrated a variety of extended saxophone techniques, performed segments from the unreleased sections, and took questions from the audience.
