Saxophonist, educator and composer Patrick McCulley is originally from Oakridge, Oregon and currently teaches and performs in Portland, Oregon. His current solo project for acoustic saxophone combines minimalism, growls, multiphonics, altissimo, unusual timbres, and improvisation to create otherworldly soundscapes not typical of what most people associate with saxophone music.
Sharp contrasts of zero to full volume light the room. Dual amps burn guitar tone thick as a tectonic plate. Searing atonal lines and tech-metal shrapnel are thrown from fast alternating sound sources. Downtown Music, Death Metal and Derek Bailey are old friends now. This is Brogan Woodburn: free-metal guitar.
