QuoteAnd this is Eliza jamming on the saxophone with her teachers Benny and Lachie.Eliza Watt: One of my favourite things about playing the saxophone is seeing the colours, and that's one of the times that I do pay quite a lot of attention to them. And they come from the back of my head and shoot off really fast to a point in the distance. Probably three metres away from me. Sometimes it'll be a bit late, like I'll play a note that's green, and then green will come a few seconds later. Or sometimes it'll be right on the dot and it'll happen straight away.Lynne Malcolm: Do emotions affect the colours that you're seeing and the music you're playing?Eliza Watt: Yeah, how I'm feeling definitely affects what sort of pieces I play, which affects what colours there are. But I don't think my emotions have a very big impact on my colours.Lynne Malcolm: What colour does the saxophone connote to you?Eliza Watt: Overall it's a yellow instrument, but the noises are often quite blue--dark blue and green. When I play it it's more yellowy-greenish. Sometimes a bit of pink because I like to play in the higher octaves. And that's quite a high colour for me.
