Argentinian saxophonist Sergio Merce works on projects involving interactions between free improvisation and contemporary music. He made several european tours with Axel Dörner, Andrea Neumann, Burkhard Beins, Julia Eckhardt, Boris Baltschun, Serge Baghdassarians, Jason Kahn, Lucio Capece, Alan Curtis, Toshimaru Nakamura, Keith Rowe, Christof Kurzmann…During the last three years, Sergio Merce transformed his alto saxophone in a tremendous and radical way.

« I have been working on a "microtonal saxophone", which is an alto saxophone without the original mechanisms and keys that I replaced with water, gas and compressed air taps. I can move the tuning of any note, and play microtones, multiphonics. A sustain pedal allows me to maintain the sounds and create several sonic layers while using circular breathing. » Sergio Merce
