This afternoon Thomas Ankersmit gave an acoustic saxophone performance at Cromatico installation by Lukas Kühne located at Laulauväljak – Song Festival Ground

Within the world of acoustic instruments, the saxophone remains unique in that it is both extremely directional and very close in timbre to the human voice. As an autodidact saxophonist, Thomas Ankersmit has learned to augment these characteristics with his own microtonal sound-palette. Adapting the possibilities of his instrument to the conditions of the respective sites–the Soviet-era Linnahall lobby and Lukas Kühne’s Cromatico sculpture in the Song Festival Grounds–Ankersmit aims at making the listeners aware of the space around them and unlocking its sonic peculiarities.
