Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra

The Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra formed in 2008 as NYC’s first full-on Saxophone Orchestra. Miller composes and conducts for 2 drummers, 1 bass, 2 baritone, 3 tenor, 3 alto, 2 soprano and 1 sopranino saxophone. The curious associations with which Intervallic relations evoke - without preconceived tonal centers - is his prime interest as a composer. While finishing his degree in Chicago, Miller developed a wholly unique Interval-based Method of Composition. This came to fruition in 2007 prompting the formation of this single-timbered ensemble. A text book explaining his approach to melodic and harmonic form is to be published early 2017.

The SSO has enchanted NY audiences at Douglas Street Music Collective, Goodbye Blue Monday, Issue Project Room, Brooklyn Lyceum, Gershwin Hotel, Shea Stadium, House of Elders, White Box Gallery, 17 Frost Gallery, Mid-Manhattan Library, Spectrum, Front Room Gallery and The Williamsburg Art & Historical Center.

Miller’s Symphony of Suspicious Activity is in mixdown process with chanteuse Annabelle Playe. Release date TBA 2017.
