Saxophone Practice – Shanghai, China

Listen Now:



Shanghai, China


Katherine Peterson

A fairly common sound in Shanghai are saxophones being practiced in the park on the weekend. In this recording the familiar sound came not from a park, but an abandoned building. The City of Shanghai held the largest World Expo in history in 2010, but today most of the buildings sit empty in various states of disrepair. The featured saxophonist was spending a Sunday morning making use of the echoing acoustics of the former World Expo building, just out of sight from any passersby.
