Marquez-Borbon, Adnan
The Paradox of Continuity

Marquez-Borbon, Adnan : The Paradox of Continuity (Circumvention)
Label: Circumvention    
Released in: USA    

The Paradox of Continuity features Adnan Marquez-Borbon on alto saxophone and electronics and explores the space between opposites - tension and release, motion and rest, order and disorder, complexity and simplicity, electronic and acoustic - and the transformation from one into the other. This paradox – the paradox of the continuity between opposites - is also embodied in the use of the saxophone as the only sound source. The saxophone's sonic palette is the basis of dramatic sounds created through the use of extended techniques and digital signal processing, producing an end result that is an entirely new sound world for the intrument. Each track on the album is both composed and improvised and relies on a balance between intellect and intuition. The album is anchored by a continuum between purely acoustic sounds and exclusively electronic ones.

Adnan Marquez-Borbon is a Mexican saxophonist and composer active in Southern California and Baja California with numerous groups. His music focuses on improvisation and electroacoustic sound manipulation. Influenced by jazz, classical music, free improvisation, electronica, and traditional musics, his improvisations and compositions synthesize these elements into a unique personal style. He has participated in numerous projects with members of the Trummerflora Collective, the Spectrum Saxophone Quartet, and the Mexican Improvisation Collective Generacion Espontanea."-Circumvention
