I love writing music, but I particularly enjoy writing works for trumpet and 'tape'. Some of my works are straight backing tracks, some involve improvisation and can be used with Ableton Live! I tend to use Reason as my primary DAW, but also enjoy using Live! and Logic.
OVID'S DREAM - Has been released by Dr. James Zingara on his album, Textures: New Works for Trumpet. You can download it here: http://www.hdtracks.co.uk/music/artist/view/id/9947/. This is an earlier recording of Jim performing.
REFLECTIONS - This is a piece for trumpet and effects, all run through Ableton. There is a moment where a bit of backing track appears. The piece is based upon the first eight notes from the chorus of Steve Perry's hit, "Oh, Sherry". That melody appears briefly in the middle of the piece, harmonised with all of the notes of the melody. . . my apologies to Steve!
Find Another Bath!
Had really successful premiere at 44AD Artspace, looking forward to others playing it now!
If you wish to perform this piece, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am working on getting the correct trumpet effects added to the recording, and then will build them for Mainstage, Logic, Reaper, and Cubase.
