Often likened to the human voice, the saxophone possesses an inherently singing quality that serves as a visceral bond between performer and listener. As something each of us uses every day, the human voice offers a uniquely universal point of entry for audiences into the world of contemporary music. The SaxoVoce commissioning project has received grant funding from New Music USA and additional support through Kickstarter. All works of the project were commissioned by Ogni Suono. Check out videos under the MUSIC tab. The new album, SaxoVoce, is available on New Focus Recordings.
