David Bindman

DAVID BINDMAN, saxophonist and composer, creates works that combine many elements: drawing on the motion of dance, exploring the complexity of melody and time unbound, and emphasizing improvisation at the core. His new works, inspired by journeys of discovery and transformation and by sights and sounds close to home, merge old and new musical forms, incorporating rhythmic cycles and modalities influenced by the musics of West Africa, India, and around the globe. Heard on the recordings The Way of the Saxophone (Innova) and Far Side of Here (Omnitone), and Blood Drum Spirit: Live in China (Innova), among many others, Bindman's work has been described as 'smart, fun, and multiculturally funky' (Georgia Straight), and 'truly a merging of wide sounds...tuneful to the last' (Cadence). Bindman seeks to create work that offers, in any way possible, artistic alternatives to the profit-driven imperatives that imperil life, that deny justice, and that go against the human spirit and the natural world.
