Stephanie Richards FULLMOON for trumpet activated percussion & live-sampler

 

 

Stephanie Richards trumpet/flugal horn : J.A. Deane sampler/live-sampling

We recorded a series of duets and in each one she would play her trumpet at or into a different percussion instrument : gong : snare drum : tympani : piano : using the sounds of the trumpet to activate the resonant frequencies of each instrument which in turn would modulate the sound of the trumpet. I was live-sampling the resulting blend of these overtone interactions and responding in musical dialogue with her. 

         

 We are doing four quick hits this month and I hope that you will come check us out.

It was Butch Morris who first pulled my tail about Stephanie and it was Stephanie who asked me to do a Conduction in Memory of Butch for the 2013 FONT - Festival of New Trumpet Music with an ensemble of heavy hitters who had all experienced Conduction & wanted to honor a dear friend. The concert was held at Roulette.

  AUDIO LOG MAY 2018 : FONT13/Roulette 

What I find most interesting about Conduction, this gift that Butch Morris gave to the music world, is the transparency of the vocabulary which allows the ensemble, each particular group of players, to create music that is unique to them.....it humbles me.
