Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra

The Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra formed in 2008 as NYC’s first full-on Saxophone Orchestra. While studying in Chicago, Miller developed a wholly unique Interval-based method of Composition. This came to fruition in 2007 prompting the formation of this single-timbered ensemble. The curious associations with which Intervallic relations evoke without preconceived tonal centers is his prime interest as a Composer.

Miller conducts 12 Saxophones from Bass to Sopranino, Bass guitar, 2 Drummers, and Vocal. The SSO has enchanted NYC audiences at Douglas Street Music Collective, Goodbye Blue Monday, Issue Project Room, Brooklyn Lyceum, Gershwin Hotel, Shea Stadium, House of Elders, White Box Gallery, 17 Frost Gallery, Mid-Manhattan Library, Spectrum, Front Room Gallery and The Williamsburg Art & Historical Center. A new ensemble is now being formed in Detroit.

Their single-timbered version of Terry Riley’s IN C was released in 2012. Cloud Eleven, various compositions by Miller, was released the following year. Tomorrow Never Knows b/o Strawberry Fields as a 45 rpm in 2015.

Symphony of Suspicious Activity was recorded at Kennel Studios. Symphonie X was recorded at Seizure’s Palace. Both works anticipate a 2018 release with vocal scores written for chanteuse Annabelle Playe.
