|Alto saxophonist and composer Laura Toxvaerd usually works in the acoustic field of music – from jazz to punk. With Laura Toxvaerd no. 1 she adds an electronic dimension to her music.
Part I on Laura Toxvaerd no. 1 is made solely by sounds from the alto sax played by Laura Toxvaerd – either the acoustic sound in layered tracks or an electronically manipulated version of acoustic sounds. Alterations done with the computer help create sequences that both contain the planned structures of a written composition and the spontaneous bursts of improvisation.
Part I has been made in collaboration with producer Frederik Thaae.
Part II on Laura Toxvaerd no. 1 is a solo concert in five parts recorded live
Part II is recorded at Copenhagen Jazzhouse by DR RADIO (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) 1 July, 2004
