Part of the Mutation cycle, AULOS, a serie of sopranino saxophone solo, is an instant composition built in 10 minutes based on a contemporary approach of the instrument mainly involving « fluted » layared sounds… hissing, whisperings, rustlings , lapping and mechanical noises punctuating the basting of the piece.

Maurice Charles JJ

Alias Jean-Jacques Duerinckx, Maurice Charles JJ practising mainly the sopranino and baritone saxophones, and first influenced by Steve Lacy, Antonny Braxton, John Surman, Hamiet Bluiett; his meetings with saxophonists Lol Coxhill and later Michel Doneda were finally decisive – guiding his playing to a world where material sound and abstract melodies coexist and intermingle.

Always been sensitive to the visual arts, he is interested in electro-acoustic music, sound art and particularly to “soundscapes”. He collaborates with other forms of artistic expression by contribution with the unique color of his instrument’s own rare vocal qualities which he also uses for his sound creations…

He’s also the founder of the free improvisation collective OMFI.
