Trombone Trio “Arts” project

So, in the spirit of trying to regularly post – about 6 months ago I was commissioned to write a piece for an Arts project to raise the profile of a Pottery yard in Gladstone. This was an incredibly difficult task in the end, given that I ended up getting a new job, the event was miles away and I had to record two of the lines in a studio to save money on hiring live musicians.

The end product was OK, I think. There was apparently nothing but positive feedback about the piece.

The piece was played in a Kiln called “Big Bertha”, with the audience just outside of the kiln, following some dancers around as they danced to it. If I ever get a hold of any footage of them dancing, I will certainly post it on here!

I did, however, manage to get a quick live recording of the piece. There were some duff notes, but I only had one chance to get it right. To hear a (relatively) flawless version, listen to the one on Soundcloud (click the thing above, or go to the “Portfolio” page and find it in there).

Here’s the video of me playing the piece in Big Bertha.
