A numberless array of nameless, chordal sounds and spectral
potentialities reside in the misuse of the saxophone’s well-oiled
mechanics. Adam Tinkle and Drew Ceccato have gradually built
their duo music out of a shared interest in these multiphonic
capabilities of the instrument. Their first move was to explore
and document the rich, dense chords that result from two saxes
each hanging on to their own internal chords, exploring the
emergent harmonies between two misbehaving air columns in
turbulent flow.
But this was just the beginning of the explorations that led to
Eidolon. Closely tuned near unisons, the intrusion of ghostly
third actors in the form of beats and difference tones,
xenharmonic intervals that sound like the warped fabric of
space, all these seem to result in the loss of the self in a sort of
auto-convecting, spherical turducken made of lungs, electricity
and concrete. It doesn’t hurt that Ceccato’s opalescent, biting
tenor and Tinkle’s purring, rubbery alto converge in an uncanny
valley of saxophone sound--you can rarely tell who’s who and
which way is up. What at one moment could be a carousel organ
made of nickel and brass might an instant later sound like
howling guitar feedback. This is sound as shape-shifting spiritimage.
