Remnants Paul Rudy

tape alone
This work looks at the trumpet from the inside out and is put together from many sorts of remnants. First, are the bits left over from a previous piece for trumpet and tape; sonic carpet scraps from a work which would not support any of the material found here. There are the sonic remnants from my days as a jazz trumpeter; nerve impulses, left in my bones, which I can still feel under the right circumstances. And finally, there are the remnants of sound from the trumpet itself; molecules which continue to bounce in the tubes long after the lips have left the mouthpiece. Remnants is made entirely of trumpet samples provided by Jack Sutte, and was composed at Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand, while on a Fulbright Fellowship.
