Free-jazz saxophone / noise vs  New bagpipe tradition

Unusual points of view on a modern music by the meeting of techniques of saxophone suedo-Austrian transferred by the American and European jazz answering a Scottish instrument become hybrid by the french modern music.

Microtonals Clusters, pneumatic noise, circulating frenzy, oscillating, resulting in a new poetic energy!

Compressed air by cylindrical and conical projectors. Air of the delivery, liquified Air, split up Air, concen- trated Air.
