Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Ben Miller, Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra



David Weinstein talks to composer and musician Ben Miller on the eve of his performance at the Brooklyn Lyceum, where he premiered his Symphony of Suspicious Activity. Miller is best known for his work in the genres of punk/avant rock and electronic/noise. But here he's he traded in his guitar for a conductor's baton to lead a 14-piece saxophone ensemble, the Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra (SSO), through a rousing evening of musical offerings. While some may wonder about a symphony composed mainly of saxophones, Miller says that by using an entire orchestra with only a single instrument, the over-all sound is as if one gigantic instrument is playing (23 minutes).
