The speed with which we're falling
Can gravity teach us how to transform our burdens? A musical exploration.
In his new band project, German saxophonist Jon Sensmeier investigates which strengths lie in our vulnerabilities. Touching electronic music, pop, hip-hop and noise, Jon wants to find what he thinks is missing in modern jazz.
"I get stressed of being an expressive and virtuous soloist", he says. "So I use my instrument in a different way."The results are floating voices, playful synths, trap beats and electrified saxophone harmonies. They are inspired by his previous solo project, in which Jon built cinematic sound worlds by manipulating his saxophone sound with live electronics.
