for bass trombone and heavy metal drum kit
For years I wanted to incorporate the use of double bass petal in a piece. The goal of Fractured Metal is to take the feeling of death metal and apply it to an extraordinarily virtuosic bass trombone and drum set duo. While both instruments engage in a jagged duet which in no way resembles ‘hardcore’ music, the bass trombone uses multiphonics and growls to mimic a heavy metal vocalist while the drum kit has double petal rolls, toms, and a variety of metals to invoke the intense nature of heavy metal.
