|Saw the following on www.themouthpiece.com and thought that a fair amount of it would appeal to the TH comunity as well.
Artists are a brass-nerd's wet dream:
Australian Brass Quintet
Of particular interest to many of you will be the concert next Wednesday night at 7:30pm - Kew Band Melbourne and the Melbourne Staff Band accompanying Oystein, Wycliffe, Steven and Rex as they do some fancy solos.
Things will be going live next week through www.brassbanned.com and www.4barsrest.com. Concerts are generally 4:30pm and 7:30pm (GMT + 10). I'm not sure how that works for those of you on the 'wrong' side of the globe. www.brassbanned.com is actually having a bit of cosmetic and structural work done over the next few days, to make sure it can cope with everything. Don't have a panic attack if it's down a little bit over the next 24 hours.
I will also be capturing interviews with the artists and organisers, asking hard hitting questions like "what's your favourite colour", "what mouthpiece do you like to use to play really high loud notes" and "is there such a thing as too much vibrato". The first few interviews are actually up now at www.youtube.com/brassbanned
