Solo

“Mainwaring has also been playing solo sets featuring saxophone and electronics and in 2014
I witnessed just such a performance when he supported pianist John Escreet’s trio at Kings Place as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival. It was an intense, uncompromising performance that was utterly compelling” Ian Mann

 

This is a private link exclusively for people discovering music through my website. My solo sax work with electronics has been a work in progress for the past five years.

I produce these tracks using a mixture of analog and digital effects pedals and recording software. It’s forever expanding and contracting and I’m constantly experimenting with ways of getting the full sound live (without needing extra limbs and a van full of gear).

Here’s a video I did for the Muso Channel.
