Saxophoinist, improviser and composer Torben Snekkestad gives a lecture-recital on the poetics of a multiphonic landscape

Part of the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme, Torben Snekkestad’s research is inspired by the complex possibility of producing a rich vocabulary of multiple sounds on an instrument considered monophonic.

It`s an acoustic solo saxophone project with an emphasis on the practical and creative ways of using these sounds as the “energy center” in improvised settings – unfold the “hidden” poetics of these saxophone sounds.

The project seeks to uncover, tabulate and create, in considerable detail, a cartography for the poetic landscape of (saxophone) multiphonic. Both precisive about a historical body of work (i.e. “past multiphonics”) and the creation of a possible multiphonic future.

Among other things, Torben will talk about his “Personal Multiphonic Library”, about the construction of a hybrid instrument (Reed-Trumpet) and how field recordings from underwater soundscapes have had an important impact on his project. The performance will mix live music, talk and recorded music.
