Schrodinger᾿s Sax, soprano and alto saxophones
AKA Michael Couper
A classically trained saxophonist with a background in stage acting and melodrama whose current favorite artist is electronica wunderkind Zedd, Michael Couper (Schrodinger’s Sax) has found a perfect home in the electrifying cross-genre group SWARMIUS . A wearer of many hats, Dr. Couper is equally engaged as a performer, teacher, conductor, scholar, software engineer, and music publisher. Finding great difficulty in settling on a major in college, Couper became enthralled with interdisciplinary studies and the ways in which many contrasting points of view and subjects of study contribute to the greatest possible expression of one’s own personality and musical artistry. His current projects include the development of a digital practice assistant that seek to transform the way private teachers interact with their students as they practice away from the studio, and grant access to rigorous study to those students who do not have access to private tutors. Seeking his path after having pushed straight through three music degrees, Dr. Couper became reinvigorated by the introduction to rave music and culture, finding in it and the capacity to reconnect with the fundamental musical underpinnings of communication and cognition, granting hope for the future of music as it relates to our increasingly digital culture.
