Recorded in a reverberant space during the spring 2016, Strangeness is Gratitude is a sonic experience through, inside and with sound. I have composed the 7 tracks by sending notes out in an abandoned warehouse, listened to how they sound in the space, and the space sounds with them. It's a sonic travel inside the shared intimacy of a huge space and my baritone saxophone.
