about

Aram Shelton re-arranges and extends sounds including resonant feedback, complex harmonics and multi-phonics from a 1927 Conn alto saxophone. This rich source material is used to create multiple layers of tones through sample based explorations. The resulting sounds are patiently lush with static energy, and invoke imagery such as shadows and twilight.
