Trumpeter John Adler will bring his “Scarlet Rising Moon” album release tour to the University of Wyoming at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts recital hall.
The concert, sponsored by the UW Department of Music, is free and open to the public.
Adler and composer Adam Cuthbert’s collaborative full-length album will be released Friday, Nov. 8, on slashsound records. The tour kicks off at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley Nov. 11, with additional dates in Colorado, Wyoming and Utah.
Over the last decade, Cuthbert has developed his own performance practice of digitally processed trumpet, transmuting the instrument into more of a synthesizer than an orchestral instrument, and resulting in slashsound recording projects, such as Kuuma and skullcap5050.
Adler and Cuthbert began “Scarlet Rising Moon” in 2014 as part of a new commissioned work, which expanded into a 35-minute “Sonata for Trumpet and Ableton,” using improvisation, interactive musical structure and live effects with the digital audio workstation Ableton Live.
The project has been performed nationwide and was presented as part of the 2015 International Trumpet Guild Conference in Columbus, Ohio, featuring multiple works for trumpet and electronics in classical and jazz settings, including live performances.
“Scarlet Rising Moon” serves both as a compendium of Cuthbert’s body of works for trumpet and as a new genome of composer-performer spliced from jazz, techno, ambient and contemporary composition.
