Noah Becker is a saxophonist, clarinetist and composer living and working in New York. His music incorporates elements of jazz, folk, and classical traditions, and it is marked by stark melodies and harmonies, strong rhythmic independence of voices, sinewy orchestrations, and a discerning awareness of music’s ability to shape and alter our experience of the passage of time. The traditional, but false, division between composition and improvisation is quick to vanish inside his sound-world. He is attuned to the interplay of the vibrations of sound, and how we relate to them physiologically—through our bodies as resonant listeners, and our minds as co-creators of music and art.
