Conversations With Myself

Conversations With Myself is a duet for tenor and bass trombone I wrote for Gerry Pagano’s recital at the 2017 International Trombone Festival. Of course, I performed it on alto on Gerry’s recital, but the piece goes no higher than high C, so it works fine on tenor trombone.

Conversations is to be performed over a pre-recorded backing track of synthesizer and sound design which you will receive as a .wav file. A brief performance guide comes with the parts which describes the audible cues so that you will easily be able to play with the recorded track. You also receive two individual audio files–one without tenor and one without bass trombone–for practicing.

Included will be:

  • Score
  • Individual parts
  • Individual practice audio files for tenor only and bass only
  • Link for downloading background track
  • Performance guide
  • Link to ITA performance video of Michael and Gerry Pagano

I created a video over the studio version Gerry and I recorded. The video contains clips of our ITF performance as well as several ethereal images that slowly evolve over the length of the piece. The link to the video file is in the included READ ME file.
