Info for Pulse

First record made from my compositions and my universe. This album explores different facets of my imagination with sometimes a lyrical saxophone, sometimes rhythmic or just treated as a percussion instrument. The colours of these pieces are marked with musical and cultural references. As a performer, these compositions also reflect a musical and technical outcome that highlights the modernity of the saxophone with different styles and influences. From sonata to solo, including a mixed quarter with drums, double bass, piano and saxophone, this program will help you rediscover the melodic and rhythmic capacities of Adolphe SAX's creation.
