Broken Mirror - Solo for Multiple Trumpets and Electronics
About the Work:
In Spring of 2018, Composer Brendan Sweeney partnered with trumpeter Ben Elgan to create a new piece for Solo Trumpet and Electronics. Diving into the aesthetics of a “Broken Mirror” and the concept of altered reflections, the piece will be at home on any solo recital program. The electronic element will be fixed media playback and the sound world will be created with a combination of MAX7 interface-based tools and different utilizations of common sound processing techniques.
