Waves shifting, morphing, constantly evolving from one form to the next in a liquid dance of never-ending patterns. That could aptly describe the dunes of the world’s great oceans of sand, but it could also describe music.
For this piece, I wanted to adopt my playing style to more of a liquid flowing of sound. I’ve always contended that the trombone has unique physical characterists that allow the player to produce much more than a sequence of static sounds. Not just traditional glissandos up and down to neighboring notes, but sonic connections between wider intervals and musical ideas.
