How universal is the sound of a trumpet? Could there be some primal musical
experience when we blow into some kind of mouthpiece-with-resonator, one
that pops up in related forms of all kinds over the world? Marco Blaauw will
use these questions to explore the range of forms his instrument can take on
in Global Breath, a lively and varied collection of solo works with electronics.
All the big names on earth today have written music for Blaauw’s virtuoso talents
as a soloist and as a member of Ensemble Musikfabrik. We’re already collectively
holding our breaths in anticipation of so much excellent honking!
