Challenging the Saxophone’s Traditional Role in Jazz and Improvised Music Through Exploration and Utilisation of Extended Instrumental Techniques

Samenvatting

This artistic research report explores the functional possibilities of three extended instrumental techniques for the saxophone, uncovering and applying discovered conceptual principals for their use in composition, performance and improvisation which allow for saxophonists to occupy non-traditional roles and functions in the broad context of jazz and improvised music. The techniques of multiphonics, percussive articulation and circular breathing are at the centre of this investigation and were selected due to their inherent potential when utilised creatively to position the saxophone as an accompanying instrument by having it occupy harmonic or chordal function, rhythmic and percussive underpinnings, mood or atmospheric presence or a mixture of the above in a given piece of music.
Particular areas of enquiry include: theoretical and practical underpinnings of the chosen extended techniques, analysis of various case studies outlining certain compositional trends of their use in existing material, personal artistic application of these concepts in the form of compositions and recordings (for the duo Meatshell - featuring saxophone & double bass/vocals), personal artistic application of these concepts in a purely improvised context (in the form of recordings with vocalist Sebastian Stert). The results within have highlighted the possibilities with regard to
how the saxophone can be reimagined conceptually as an instrument and how techniques which are mainly utilised in avant-garde, contemporary classical and freely improvised music could be bridged into the world of jazz.
