Will Menter - Intimate in Public

In the wonderful surroundings of Quincerot in Burgundy I joined 12 other saxophonists to record Will Menter's piece Intimate in Public this June. I had originally played tenor on a slightly different version of the piece with the European Saxophone Ensemble in 2013. You can see a beautiful documentary film on that project here.

Guillaume Orti, Olivier Py, Karen van Schaik, Chisato Cieux, Lionel Garcin, Alice Waring, Sylvain Debaisieux, Bruno Wilhelm, Marie Braun, Andy Leveque, Jouk Minor and Cyril Darmedru.

The new version is a video piece, where audio and video of the performances in different spaces will be digitally layered on top of each other in the editing process. Instead of tenor I was on bass. There was lots of walking while playing, quite a workout. We performed in a forest, on an aqueduct, and a cavernous 13th century hospital, among other locations. Great to play with such a team of saxophonists!
