    Natural cave reverb attack!!
    Chinese free improvisation saxophonist / flutist 老丹 Lao Dan's first solo album.

    These recordings are from Qinglongdong Tunnel in Hangzhou, China. All natural cave reverb, the free improvisation of his alto saxophone, the sound of the passengers and the cars were recorded, as every functioning individual.

    "Lao Dan is a monster improviser. I'd never heard of him and I was completely swept away by his powerful playing and concept."

    "I have this feeling Lao is a soldier that cannot be silenced."

    「雖說手段是即興/自由爵士,但其剛硬的氣質無不讓人想到『紀律』兩字。」
    - 呂立揚 Li-Yang(破地獄 Scattered Purgatory)

    「一次身體與環境的合謀,激越的吹奏是身體性爆發的吶喊,被自然混響並加持,又凸顯出克制的理性神采。」
    - 陳郁 CHEN Yu

    來自遼寧丹東,現居杭州的中國竹笛/薩克斯演奏者老丹的首張薩克斯獨奏專輯,包括一首竹笛演奏的Bonus track。這份錄音來自杭州青龍洞隧道,記錄了那一時刻老丹薩克斯的即興演奏和每一個行動體發出的聲音。全自然的洞穴混響、來往的行人和車輛都被記錄到了這盒磁帶之中。

    Lao Dan is a freelance musician and wind instrument player, who started learning sax at the age of 8 and later turned to Dizi.

    During 2002 to 2006, he studied dizi in Beijing. In 2007, he was admitted with the highest score to Shenyang Conservatory of Music (SYCM), majoring in Dizi. During college, he served as the principal Dizi player of Youth Chinese Orchestra of SYCM.

    From 2012, he started his research on wind instruments from all over the world, including Jew's harp, Didgeridoo, Bansuri, Bamboo Sax, Duduk, etc. Lao Dan blends his own thoughts into the traditional way of playing Dizi, in which he pays a lot of attention on details of freedom, mood, thought and space. With plenty of performing and recording experience, Lao Dan has been experimenting more on his music since 2014. Based on Dizi and sax, adding various wind instruments and with new elements such as experiment, noise and improvisation, his music has been improved to a more substantial and creative level. He has also been actively cooperating with artists worldwide, including the legendary Japanese drummer Sabu Toyozumi.

    In 2013, he formed the music group Red Scarf with Deng Boyu and Li Xing, covering a variety of music genres including progressive rock, thrash metal, avant-garde jazz, funk metal and punk rock, and released their eponymous debut album in 2016.

    In May 2017, Lao Dan finishde recording his first Dizi solo album “Zhui Yun Zhu Meng (追云逐梦)” and it was ready to be released under Modern Sky World Music. In June, he joined a four-country avant-garde saxophone project raised by Japanese label Armageddon Nova, where his own composition “Self-destructive Machine (自毁机器)” is issued.
