ADOLPHE SAX …. INVENTOR OF THE SAXOPHONE

Who was he and why does he matter?

Today’s Google Doodle explained

Antoine-Joseph “Adolphe” Sax (6 November 1814 – c. 7 February 1894) was a Belgian inventor and musician who invented the saxophone. He played the flute and clarinet, and his other creations are the saxotromba, saxhorn and saxtuba.

Antoine-Joseph Sax was born on November 6, 1814 in Dinant, Belgium to Mr. and Mrs. Charles-Joseph Sax. While his first name was Antoine, he was referred to as Adolphe from childhood.

His father and mother were instrument designers themselves, who made several changes to the design of the horn. Adolphe began to make his own instruments at an early age, entering two of his flutes and a clarinet into a competition at the age of 15. He subsequently studied performance on those two instruments as well as voice at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

November 6th is the 201st birthday of the Belgian musician and inventor of the saxophone, who is being celebrated by five Google Doodles

Adolphe Sax, born in Belgium on November 6, 1814, was a Belgian musician and inventor who created the much-loved saxophone. Sax invented several instruments including the saxophone which was patented in 1846.

“He started tinkering with instruments of his own, and upon bringing together the body of a brass and the mechanics of a woodwind, created a hybrid that would revolutionize music,” Google wrote on its Doodle blog.

“His eponymous saxophone had a sound all its own, a wonderfully smoky middle ground between the two.”

Sax was one of 11 children, and came from a lineage of instrument-makers – his father, who was also a carpenter, passed down his skills to his entrepreneurial son who apparently began tinkering with his first instrument – the clarinet – as a teenager.

According to Google, one Doodle wouldn’t be enough to showcase how creative and “inventive” Sax was, so the artist Lydia Nichols designed five different Doodles, each highlighting a different instrument invented by Sax.

“Brussels-based photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte created this stunning project featuring an acrobatic dancer displaying various expressive poses that seem to be frozen in time. The dancer throws clouds of powdered milk up in the air while fulfilling graceful and fluid movements. Jeffrey Vanhoutte captured them in film and photo though as he states it took even longer too clean up the mess than to actually create the images.”

The post which I’m referring to is this one
