A program of new and recent solo works, with the mercurial double-bell trumpet as the centrepiece by WA, by Berlin-based, composer and trumpet player Callum G’Froerer, active in improvised and notated musical settings.
Callum G'Froerer presents a recital of new electro-acoustic works featuring the double-bell trumpet, an instrument never seen on Australian stages. A second bell allows for graceful transitions between different tone colours, new methods of articulation, and for allowing acoustic and electronically processed systems to occur simultaneously within the one instrument.
