Mascolo, Carlo: My Tubes (Creative Sources)

A unique take on this large brass instrument from Italian trombonist and Free Flow Festival director Carlo Mascolo, using preparations, focusing on components of the instrument, and using extreme techniques to create a startlingly diverse set of sounds, vocalisations, microtonal output and simply bizarre utterances as Mascolo brings new language to horn.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Italian trombonist Carlo Mascolo's My Tubes is an intriguing set of fifteen brief pieces-most running between one and three-and-a-half minutes long-for prepared trombone. All emphasize the physical process of creating sound through a brass instrument with breath, mouth, tongue and voice. For example, Slided takes a single pitch divided by micro-variations and embellishes it with vocalizations mimicking the rhythms of speech, traces of unpitched breath, and durations embodied in quasi-Morse code divisions of time. As its title announces, Mouthpiece emphasizes the role of the trombone's mouthpiece as it captures and slightly distorts Mascolo's humming. LFO's approximates an electronic effect by staging multiple sounds in a kind of out-of-phase, autocounterpoint. One of Mascolo's intentions with My Tubes was to make his acoustic instrument sound like a synthesizer or oscillator, and on this piece he does just that."-Daniel Barbiero, Avant Music News
