Saxsyndrum’s music takes a look at contemporary electronic music culture, blurring the line between analog instrumentation and digital production. Schofield and Switchenko contort meticulous grooves into funky romps, playfully bringing their musicianship to the dance floor.
2014’s SXD_EP sees Saxsyndrum at odds, with Schofield and Switchenko splitting the EP down the middle. Schofield’s drum side brings the listener into a geological expedition of percussion, bringing out the hidden musicality of the rhythm section. The saxophone side explores the instrument’s complete sonic landscape as Switchenko crafts his musical palette with every facet of his instrument from the reed to the keys.
