Now, the articulation was a bit muddy... I think you needed a little more definition. Try using more of the "tip," or perhaps use a sharper attack. Remember, a good solid attack sends the energy THROUGH the horn, not merely to it. While I understand using the glasses at the end, it just feels too careful. Just go for it, don't let the audience know that what you're doing i dangerous. And at the end, you would have gotten a much richer sound if you had intensified your energy a bit to get the metal vibrating a bit more. Use your entire body to play the trumpet, and try to eliminate all the arm tension--you were playing with way too much pressure.
Good thing it's not a concerto. All those conductors who, when they don't have anything else to say, ask the percussionists to use harder mallets would be at a loss here.

All kidding aside, where can I buy a copy of this new concerto? I'm looking for something to open my recital with.
Too late now but there needs to be a change in that piece. Those little sticks that are pulled out first should be replaced with 3 pound hammers. That is er......... was one of the worst sounding horns ever.
May the God of Israel, who is very real, and who sent the Messiah and the Savior that we so desperately need so that we can be reconciled to our Creator and live forever with the Three-In-One God, bless you today!

There's a very evil part of me that wonders what would happen if you did that with a Monette Raja Samahdi... I think you might need Manny's gas powered device...
Y'know, the piece, and I mean all of it, sounded kinda like the vendor showroom at the NYBrass Conference.

Let me tell you all a little bit about the piece...
It was written for a dance company called '3 Dances'; so originally the composition was to end with the horn in three separate pieces. During the first performance of the composition, I was using an older horn from the 60’s; great sound, good valves, and excellent construction. So this older horn actually stayed together when cut apart and I was left with three distinct pieces of scrap metal. This performance on the current video was with a shiny new Chinese horn, purchased off of eBay for pennies. This horn had a decent sound, but the intonation was awful. Also, when I went at it – the horn basically exploded, it wouldn’t hold together enough to divide into the required three pieces, bummer.
I’m considering performing this on the ‘new music for trumpet’ recital at the ITG conference. What do you think?

Go for it!

I think it would be great...just hold yourself together! I'd love to see/hear it.

That's the single most disturbing thing I've ever seen.
Might burn out the saw (or at least a few blades) if you did that on a Monette, I think...
