The Foggy Field - by J. Mayall
for trumpet, flugal horn, turntables and backing track
Trumpet and Flugal Horn: Mike Booth
Turntables and Backing track: Jeremy Mayall
‘The Foggy Field’ takes its inspiration (and vocal sample) from an interview with composer Philip Glass talking about his compositional process. It is a process of uncovering and fine-tuning images through a thick fog. Musically this piece explores the combination of minimalism, modal jazz, dance music, electronica, and soundscape. Listen closely to hear the sounds of NZ birds emerging from an electronic fog.
