Hailed by the New York Times for his “sweet intensity” and “insinuating smoothness,” modern saxophonist Michael Couper has performed internationally as a soloist and chamber musician at venues including the Seoul Arts Center, Symphony Space, Merkin Hall, and Carnegie Hall, and is engaged by the Mimesis Ensemble, the San Diego Symphony, and the San Diego Opera, among others. Under the pseudonym “Shrodinger’s Sax”, Dr. Couper plays soprano saxophone with the musically acrobatic and genre-defying band SWARMIUS, described as “a sonic fusion of hip-hop and house-lounge-techno meets modern-classical.” He co-founded a music publishing company, Radnofsky Couper Editions that endeavors to enrich the repertoire of the modern saxophonist, offering as part of its catalog adaptations of historical masterworks as well as exciting new commissions. Dr. Couper is currently visiting faculty at CSU San Bernardino, was recently visiting faculty at San Diego State University, and is a Conn-Selmer Artist endorsing Yanagisawa saxophones.
