How To Tell A Sound with Eve Essex & Andrew Bernstein
25 February 2019
Eve Essex hosts Andrew Bernstein, a Baltimore-based experimental composer and performer known for his intensely cyclical alto saxophone playing. The show starts off with a live solo set recorded at Pineapple Reality in Brooklyn, NY, and travels through music from Bernstein’s solo practice as well as his long-running band Horse Lords, and some saxophone inspiration. Discussion touches on how Bernstein transitioned from electronics to winds, how ambient and drone music has inspired his performance techniques, and life in the Baltimore DIY scene among other topics.
