Using only a saxophone and a handful of electronic devices, Butler recorded all of the Thirteen Dances in real-time without the aid of samples, loopers, overdubs, or prerecorded materials. Unlike most musicians who work with dance, Butler uses a wireless microphone to move with the dancers onstage, blending the music, the dancer, and the daydream.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Juliań Picado, January-August, 2020
