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