~ p e r c o l a t e ~ is a collaborative composition by Zoe Cutler and Tori Ervin, a composer, engineer, sound designer, and performer. It was premiered in March of 2018, and is a piece for solo trombone and fixed media. Every sample in this work comes from the manipulation of live trombone sounds, including mouthpiece, air, and muted sounds. You can listen to a studio version of it here, for three trombone parts overdubbed. The piece has also been performed live with just one trombone.
