    I just saw this video of a man playing 2 trumpets simutaneously and then playing it simutaneously again with his nostrils and then his ears.... is this possible?

    Are you serious?


    Of course it isn't....
    even if you could manage to "buzz" out your ears, how do you blow air out of them?

    It is possible. I've actually done it before, and I have a videoclip as well (with sound). Just go to this website:

    Which horns does he play and which mouthpieces? That is real trumpet stuff--would he sound twice as good or four times as good with a Monette? What is the plural of Prana or of Zorba? Could anyone duplicate this task on rotaries?

    Yee HAW!
    The horn on the left is a trumpet... Bb I believe. So is the one on the right.

    If a Monette suited his playing style, "Yes, he might sound twice as good" (four times if he used both ears.... but then he could have trouble staying in tune with himself).

    Pranae.

    Zorbii. (the past tense of which is "Zorbant".

    This task could be duplicated on rotaries if he used the Schulman system (two required) to hold the horns (the better to free up his hands to work the tuning slides). He will experience some discomfort, however, due to the physical layout of a rotary.

    One last comment: I sure hope he doesn't try this while suffering from a head cold.... it could lead to a really "stuffy" sound.

    NOT from Stuttgart. :D

    Pranae? Sounds Greek and not Indian to me! Have fun, VB.
