Excerpt from the booklet
In 1992 I have released the CD ´Shanghaied on Tor Road´ (FMP CD 046), and its subtitle was "The world´s first operetta performed on nothing but the daxophone". Well, in those days I´ve probably assumed that this new little toy needed to prove something.
First: that it was a real musical instrument, not just a party gimmick. Second: that it could properly function in multi-voiced structures, like a band, or a choir.
It´s about 10 years later now, and a lot of people have seen and listened to it since - and learned that the ´d´ is not at all a misprinted ´s´. Also the music of YUXO was exclusively generated on this little instru-ment (with very few exceptions). But there was no need to prove something any more: the daxophone comes by as if it was the most natural thing of the world.
In late 2001 I was commissioned to compose and record some daxophone music for a new production of the ´Comedy of Errors´ by William Shakespeare. The piece was directed by Martin Duncan from London, and performed at the Maxim Gorki Theatre in Berlin through-out the first half of 2001. (...)
A few parts of YUXO have more or less emerged from the musical material of this project. Sometimes just as a theme or a little sketch, sometimes as an entire song which was refined and put into a new ambience about one year later. (...) H.R.
