A Thing A Week - 2016 - Week 37 | Table Tennis for Two Trumpets - Composer Quest Olympics - Event 2 - Gold Medalist

Welcome to Week 37!

Time for more 2016 Composer Quest Olympics music! Event 2:

Table Tennis

Due September 17th

You’ll be randomly paired with another composer, and you’ll collaborate on a short composition in any style, for any instrumentation. The only requirement is that you and your partner must alternate contributing notes/beats one at a time, ping pong-style. You can try sending a notation file back and forth, or send recordings, or just email note names and lengths. When you’re done, provide a recording to share with the group.


So as fate would have it, my original partner dropped out just days before the composition was due. So, with a last minute addition to the Olympics, they allowed me and Kate to work together on this one. What else would two trumpet players do?

Table Tennis for Two Trumpets. 100% improvised.
Check it out (listen in headphones or earbuds or on a stereo system):

In case you were wondering, I'm on the left and Kate is on the right (in the stereo field). This was fun :-D

See you next week!
