Default How to play the sax abrasively?

Due to my living situation I can't practice the sax for too long, especially the wilder techniques would drive my neighbours insane.
Does anyone have some tips for achieving a screechy, squeaky, free-jazzy sax sound? If I knew what to look for, I'd have to experiment less, which in turn would bother everyone around me less.
I'm not looking to be a great sax player, but I'd like to add some screeching sax to a track I'm working on.
What I'm currently doing is growling and/or overblowing, but it's not abrasive enough.

Bite (or put a lot of pressure with your lips) the reed and scream into it.

Thanks!
I tried loud, almost shouting humming when growling, but no screaming yet.

You can hear Gayle's high pitched screams occasionally on this, that's where I picked it up.
