There are a number of established, conservative duo setups in Western music; but DRAX isn’t one of them, and doesn’t want to be. The saxophone-percussion duo, consisting of saxophonist Leo Saguiguit and percussionist Megan Arns, may be firmly rooted in contemporary American academia, but their music is one thing first and foremost: positively rebellious. Having intentionally commissioned a diverse range of composers in terms of style, ethnicity and gender, DRAX ambitiously attempts to scrutinize and reflect upon current social issues on CHAOS + CONTEMPLATION. Political turmoil, mass hysteria and the impact of ubiquitous technology are among the motifs presented, and this struggle is impressively manifest and tangible in the music – energetic, unapologetic and raw.
