  8. Trombone Graffiti

    Composer: Buss, Howard J.
    Instrumentation: Quartet Instruments: Trombone
    Genre: Contemporary
    "Trombone Graffiti" for trombone quartet or ensemble by Howard J. Buss was composed in the fall of 2016. While writing this work the composer envisioned trombonists creating graffiti, not in the usual manner with paint and chalk, but with sonic gestures. The composition is musically sophisticated, yet is designed to appeal to a wide range of audiences. At times the music is characterized by bold, colorful swoops of sound, often with idiomatic glissandi. In other sections, staccato passages suggest a pointillist approach to creating the graffiti. Throughout, an undercurrent of edginess and electrifying tension permeates the music, as if to suggest the graffiti artists face the risk of getting caught in the act of producing their art.
