Peering Through Jason Saunders

Peering Through is a live recording of a fully improvised solo performance, recoded in my home studio in Mississauga (Ontario) in March 2019. This piece is representative of a broader, live performance practice. The aim is to integrate acoustic and synthesized sound sources into an organic and responsive live performance with the use hardware sequences, effects and loopers. No virtual instruments or pc-based effects are used. This performance process allows the composer the freedom to explore many aspects of sound, music and expression that offer the excitement of playing while providing enough technical and sonic limitations to warrant creative, real-time compositional problem-solving.
