about

tension, pressure, the mechanics of the instrument.
100% extended technique.

for two decades david gross has been transforming the saxophone into exactly what it is: a metal tube with keys, mouthpiece and a reed. reviews of his recordings have been as varied as "lengthy episodes of fingernails ripping at a blackboard" to "the intimacy with which he approaches the saxophone, each screw in each latch, every fiber in the reed, every pad or valve, and all the negative space in between, is simply astounding.” having grown frustrated with the “meaning” and “possibilities” of “music” within the last five years, mr. gross has started to form a different relationship to “performance” which includes influences of institutional critique, lacanian psychoanalysis and identity politics.
