For Choreographed Trumpets and Trombones (2020), 15"

Each movement utilizes a different movement system and set of stylistic constraints, from separate Xenakis-style sieves (mvt 2) to detached trombone slides (mvt 4) and yoga poses with corresponding pitches (mvt 6). For some highlights, check out movements 6 and 7.

Note: the April workshop and premiere at Northwestern University was cancelled due to COVID-19. The full score is below, along with NotePerformer realizations of each movement, if interested. Movement 7 features a sung version of the bass trombone solo and spoken text performed by the composer to aid the imagination.
