Perhaps You already know about Kientzy´s concisive book about Saxophone-multiphonics? It´s bilingual, French publisher:
Daniel Kientzy, Les Sons Multiples aux Saxophones, Salabert 1982, E.A.S 17543.
It´s the most often exploited source for saxophone-multiphonics, and generally extremely versatile.
Producing multiphonics isn´t at all like producing chords; the latter are a defined preset set of certain pitches, and the former are a continuum of frequencies. Therefore both must not be confused - which composers often do, writing down three or four pitches to be hit as they were with,e.g., a guitar or piano. Windinstrument multiphonics are a different category altogether, a phenomenon all on their own; so I wouldn´t fret about those notated pitches too much ( a thing the unsurpassable H. Spaarnay, bcl, said him self to me once discussing your problem exactly), either the fingering given results in a satisfactory multiphonic, so You use that, or, if the result doesn´t fit in the piece at all, You choose one that fits on Your own, consulting sources like the Kientzy. The point is to adhere to the composition, the deep structure of it.
