Klagelied um Vier Stimmen

I composed this saxophone quartet in April 2021 and premiered it at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, where I was a counselor. When I returned to Florida from the summer, I was able to record it at ComposerFest XVI in Pensacola back in September, with the UWF saxophone quartet. Here it is! Hiccups aside, it was a lot of fun to work on something and perform it alongside my peers.

Sax-Flyer – Fly Me to the Moon (feat. Sax FiRe)

Much like last time, “Sax FiRe” and I did a wonderful remote collaboration effort for the holiday season! I decided to do Fly Me to the Moon because it seemed like a good choice. I know it’s not necessarily a holiday-themed song but I feel like I always hear it around the holiday season. If you’re interested in the nerdy stuff behind the production of this song, I basically used ProTools with some Sonivox plugins to create the “backing track”, which I then sent to Sax FiRe who recorded with it in Logic and sent me back the individual tracks. I did some harmonizing and melodic interplay with my own recordings on my sax solo in the 2nd half which turned out nicely. There’s one lick I did under the altissimo B at the end that sounded way better harmonized up a 3rd, so that’s probably my favorite part.

I’m not going to put this one on Spotify so for now I’ll just direct-link the Google Drive file. I haven’t decided whether I’m going to make a music video but if I do I will link it here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ghpZ37ld9UKpUNVbkoaJCRq70JIg_Mum/view?usp=sharing

Sax-Flyer – Jingle Bells (ft. Sax FiRe)

This was a fun distance-collaboration with a former student and his parents on vocals and alto sax. If you’re here from Mrs. G’s Facebook post, this is a remastered take on the one she posted 😀 Mixed & mastered by me, also me on the flute, clarinet, and soprano sax. https://soundcloud.com/sax-flyer/jingle-bells-ft-sax-fire
