21st Century. First place prize winner in the 2001 ITG Composition Competition. Title for this piece came from the varied personalities that mutes allow the trumpet to explore. This three movement work is an exploration of three very different trumpet "personas." The piano is to be slightly "prepared" by placing an eraser in the strings of the piano. Plunger and harmon mutes required, glissandos, half valve technique, flutter tonguing, growling, and other contemporary techniques are required. Full range of the trumpet explored.
