Rotation

Last Friday I presented a new work at SHOCKOFTHENEW, WAAPA’s postgrad and staff concert. The current trajectory of my exploration has been the sounds, layers and textures available when rotating trumpet valves. This is the first work I have composed with this concept in mind. It is still a work in progress, currently titled “State for Improvisation” which refers to the state of rotation that the trumpet valves are placed in before improvisation commences.

Check the score and audio from the performance below.
