Score: Colin Stetson
Colin is a saxophonist and multireedist, and touring member of Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre and Bon Iver.

His extended saxophone techniques cover advanced circular breathing, multiphonics, altissimo, microtones, vocalisations, percussive valve-work, clicking keys, and growling.
