Trombone Choir - Free
Soundscapes for Twelve Trombones
I - Starscape
II - Seascape
III - Cityscape
At the time, I was very interested in two things compositionally speaking - sounds involving perfect fourths and music in canonic form. In fact, I still am interested in these two things today. I also wanted to write music that people could listen to. So, these 3 'soundscapes' were my attempt to write music for trombone choir. There is a bit of doubling, but in general, every voice is unique and important. The overall effect for the audience seems to be quite worthwhile.
The highest trombones will have to play up to a high C (C5), but not for very long :) The 2 lowest trombone parts go down to pedal Ab and are often in the trigger range - best suited to bass trombones.
I have decided to put the entire recording on this website so you can judge for yourself... It is a live performance in a room with a lot of reverb, but it should give you a good idea if the music would work for your trombone choir.
Trombones 1 through 10 (tenor trombones)
Trombones 11 and 12 (bass trombones)
(paper size is 8.5 x 11, but can work on A4 size paper)
