Since 2009 Ogni Suono has sought to expand and promote contemporary music for saxophone duo. They collaborate regularly with composers and other performers, presenting diverse programs to audiences across the United States and abroad. International appearances include a residency at Western University (Ontario)), the Singapore Saxophone Symposium and the 16th World Saxophone Congress (Scotland). They have also performed in Houston, Boston, New York and Baltimore.

Ogni Suono also presents master classes and outreach programs, working with young saxophonists in the USA, Singapore and Thailand. The ensemble received a 2012-13 CMS Yamaha-in-Residence Fellowship for 2013 outreach programs.

In 2014 Ogni Suono released Invisible Seams, a debut album featuring six original commissioned works.

Ogni Suono proposes to premiere two newly commissioned works for saxophone duo. The first work will examine the soundworld of two saxophones with electronics, the second explores the harmonic possibilities of sound loops falling in- and out-of-sync.

Praised by the New York Times as “imaginative…like, say, a Martian dance party,” Ryan Carter’s music has been commissioned by Carnegie Hall, the National Flute Association, the MATA Festival, the Metropolis Ensemble, Present Music, The Milwaukee Children’s Choir, and the Calder Quartet, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Jerome Foundation, the American Composers Forum, and Meet the Composer. Ryan has collaborated with the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, the International Contemporary Ensemble, the Nieuw Ensemble, the JACK Quartet, the Princeton Laptop Orchestra, and many others. Awards include the Lee Ettelson Award, the Aaron Copland Award, the Left Coast Composition Contest, the National Association of Composers/USA Composer’s Competition, and the Publikumspreis at the Heidelberg Spring Festival. Ryan holds degrees from Oberlin Conservatory (BMus), Stony Brook University (MA), and New York University (PhD), and currently teaches as a Visiting Scholar at Virginia Tech.

This new work for two soprano saxophones and fixed media, “Untitled,” will balance the richness of inherently unstable sounds with the stability of mutual support. While the material in each saxophone part will be susceptible to unpredictable discontinuities, the fusion of both instruments – in combination with starkly drawn pitch trajectories in the electronic sounds – will form a continuously evolving ribbon of textures and colors.

Originally from Kajang, Malaysia, Hong-Da Chin has won the Young and Emerging Composer Award at NEOSonicFest and Dolce Suono Ensemble Young Composers Competition. Chin’s orchestral pieces have been performed by the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, the Orkiestra Muzyki Nowej (Poland), and the Bowling Green Philharmonia, and read by the Toledo Symphony Orchestra.
Besides composing, Chin is also an active Chinese flute player. He had his Carnegie Hall debut recently joining the thirtieth anniversary season celebration of Music From China, a New York-based Chinese music ensemble.
Chin earned his diploma from SEGI College (Malaysia), B.M. in composition from the University of Houston, and M.M. in composition from the University of Louisville. Chin is in his second year of doctoral study at Bowling Green State University studying with Marilyn Shrude and Mikel Kuehn.

“Two Broken Records” was commissioned by the Ogni Suono Saxophone Duo. The saying “sound like a broken record” means to say something over and over again. Each saxophone is treated as a broken record that is constantly in a love-hate relationship with the other. Argument and harmony can be heard back-to-back, or even overlapped during the emotional interaction between these two mischievous broken records.
