Brass and Bronze (2013)
Duration: 5 minutes
Instrumentation: Trumpet 1+2, horn, trombone and tuba plus electronics
Samples used are those of the Aldbourne Bells, from the sample library of the same name recorded and created by Ian Palmer (many thanks must go to him for both providing me with the library and allowing me to use the samples in the piece). I am grateful to Bespoke Brass – Steve Drury (director, trumpet 1) Steve Tomalin (trumpet 2), Eddie Morgan (horn), Paul Yarrow (trombone), Chris Bearman (tuba) and Stuart Russell (electronics) for the performance, and for letting me share the below recording.
