Malmö Saxophone Quartet

The first recording I will make available here is a recording I did a few weeks ago together with soprano and baritone saxophonist Andreas Andersson. We started a duo a while ago which we call MSQ (Malmö Saxophone Quartet). The name obviously doesn't refer to the number of musicians but rather to the fact that, between the two of us, we play soprano, alto, tenor and baritone.
We recorded some standards and some more freely improvised stuff with the ambition to explore the term free in the context of improvisation. Some of the discussions we had leading up to this recording will be reflected in my diary.

Music download help and legal stuff

You can listen to the music either as streaming audio (if you have the required bandwidth) or you can download the entire file and listen to it off line. The streaming format is SMIL and requires a compatible player such as AmbulantX (open source player available for most platforms), RealOne or QuickTimePlayer. The beauty of the SMIL format is that the file you download contains only references to the actual media files and is therefore very small (usually less than 1KB). As long as I keep the mp3 files on my server you can keep the downloaded .smi file and listen to it whenever you want, or you can email it to a friend without using up valuable bandwidth.

I don't care if you redistribute my music, make copies of it to give away or make use of it in any non-commericial way. However, it is still not legal to redistribute it so it is always at your own risk.
