A tune I wrote based on the rumba. I play saxophone and used Kontakt instruments including bass, piano and percussion from NI called "Cuba". 

I Found a Box

Sonja Hannington

I play alto flute tenor, tenor and do vocals. This is in 7/4 except for a section in the middle in 4/4. I use several instruments from the Kontakt library including bass, guitars, drums and a choir from Mysteria. Various synths are from Reason and lots of effects. My first real attempt at a rock tune!

Many Spent Thoughts

Sonja Hannington

This was written for the Original of the Month Challenge on Sax on the Web to write a solo, unaccompanied piece. I play only tenor saxophone on one track. I used various reverbs and delays. I also used a device called Polar in Reason that is a pitch shifter, chorus and widener to add contrast to the sections.

Pisco Punch

Sonja Hannington

I wrote this for the Sax on the Web "Original of the Month" challenge for April: Write a Two-Chord Original. It is a funk tune and I play tenor. I used several sounds from my Kontakt library including funk guitarist, prime bass, tight kit, funk organ and a synth pad for the B section. **note: Pisco Punch is a drink made from pisco, lemon juice,

I wrote this for the Sax on the Web "Original of the Month" challenge for April: Write a Two-Chord Original. It is a funk tune and I play tenor. I used several sounds from my Kontakt library including funk guitarist, prime bass, tight kit, funk organ and a synth pad for the B section. **note: Pisco Punch is a drink made from pisco, lemon juice, sugar, fresh pineapple, and gum arabic. Rudyard Kipling wrote of the drink that it was "compounded of the shavings of cherub's wings, the glory of a tropical dawn, the red clouds of sunset and the fragments of lost epics by dead masters," while others wrote that "it tastes like lemonade but comes back with the kick of a roped steer," and that "it makes a gnat fight an elephant." Maybe it deserves more than two chords!
