Notes and Editorial Reviews

The brilliant and versatile contemporary trumpet player Marco Blaauw belongs to the modern generation of instrumentalists who have grasped that the further development of instruments and technical resources is part of the evolution of new music.

The four compositions recorded on this CD are prime examples of this openness in performing and experimentation. They have been assembled by David Dramm, Yannis Kyriakides, Augostino di Scipio and Michèl Koenders who put both the instrument and the musician in the limelight in a very individual manner and take the listener to Read more unexpected realms of sound: Yannis Kyriakides composes a tonally balanced interplay between instrument and tape with synthetic sounds, Agostino Di Scipio integrates the trumpet into an unstable feedback system, Michèl Koenders processes trumpet sounds in real time, and David Dramm stages a mixed-media constellation consisting of set and live components.
