Forces: Trumpet (Bb) x4
[trumpet piece] was written especially for a collaboration between the Huddersfield Undergraduate Composers Society and members of the Huddersfield Trumpet Ensemble. Each page contains the same material scored in slightly different ways; the piece includes space-time notation alongside traditional metered notation and multi-parametric tablature. The multitude of ways in which the same material is represented, with varying degrees of specificity, demonstrates the ways in which performer-composer interfaces directly effect a performer’s approach to realisation; both moment to moment and as a whole.
The piece was workshopped for a number of weeks and performed at Durham Klang Festival 2013. I’d like to thank Edwin Runagle, Pete Woodrow, George Green and Dan Armstrong for their contributions towards and performance of the piece, as well as Michael Baldwin in his role as facilitator of the collaboration and as first point of contact with the festival organisers.
