Catch and Release

Nicolas Collins

!trumpet and ensemble

durée: 25:00


Catch and Release features my “!trumpet”, a hybrid instrument combining hardware and software in a brass package to create an instrument optimized for noisy improvisation. At the invitation of Vortex, I wrote a program that takes snapshots of the instrument’s unpredictable electronic textures and instantly transcribes them into conventional notation for the ensemble to play acoustically, in contrasting accompaniment. This is probably as close to a concerto as I will ever come.
