About Jazzlines Commission Presents: Orbits CQ (Online)

Orbits CQ is a cross scene collaboration between Birmingham and London based saxophonists Chris Young and Riley Stone-Lonergan.

The work explores a deep interest in the physical and theoretical workings of the universe and their relationship with western musical systems and jazz composition.

Abandoning the traditional jazz line up of a comping instrument this chord-less quintet explores a more contrapuntal approach to composition, creating shades of harmony through the interaction of 4 single line instruments. The music draws on the erratic yet stable nature of our known universe, looking at the rhythmical quality of orbital and elliptical cycles, the explosive nature of major events such as black holes and star creation and the underlying beauty of our unimaginably vast existence.
