music of Many Axes:
neo-primitive rhythms,
tones, and textures
forming spontaneous
sonic structures
unlike anything
you’ve heard before.

The primary focus of Many Axes is exploring the potential of unusual instruments. Our sonic structures emerge from spontaneous, improvised musical communication among the members of the group, almost like a conversation. But unlike a verbal conversation, all the participants can “speak” simultaneously, weaving a surprisingly coherent musical web. The diversity of our instrumentation allows us to explore a wide range of soundscapes and moods with only three performers.

Most of the wind instruments we play were designed and fashioned from clay by Susan Rawcliffe, who has made a lifelong study of ceramics and musical traditions from around the world. This love of world music is shared by Scott Wilkinson, who also plays an extensive variety of winds, and Brad Dutz, who has collected myriad percussion instruments from many different cultures. We combine these influences to create a unique blend of sounds that evokes . . . well, only you can say what it evokes in you. Whatever that happens to be, we hope you enjoy it.
