Twenty Tricky Tunes
for two trombones
A collection of quirky, quick, and catchy duets for cunning trombonists. Each Tune has a unique style and harmonic palate, with something for every musician and listener.
Intermediate to Difficult—A fun project for anyone! Version for two bassoons also available.
Scribbles (for 1 floppy fish)
For solo tenor or bass trombone, 7". An exploration of the trombone and its coloristic flexibility. As an often-misunderstood instrument, the trombone lacks a historical repertoire and its abilities are not well-documented. In this piece, I aim to demonstrate some colors available, including extreme dynamic contrast, harmonic slurs, harsh articulation, and the trombone's infinite low range. I also use multiphonics, which is a technique that involves singing while playing. The title comes from an ongoing revision process which has reduced my sheet music to a mess of scribbles, and the piece is part of a larger series that includes Slithers (for 1 sneaky snek) for solo euphonium.
