Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Tillerich's discussion Your composing life
"1. Besides spending time with family, from sunup to sundown, and sometimes on through the night. 2. Since the pandemic hit in March I have composed over 200 finished, professionally engraved pages of sheet music. 3. I can hear it in my head. 4. I…"

"lol, I think it's fine the way it is. I was half-kidding about the brassy part. In fact, I actually like brassy brass chorales where you really let 'er rip."

"In the regular dynamics of mp-f yes. When you get to FF both can be bright but the bass trumpet sounds like a low direct trumpet. If people’s concept of trombones is only Zimmer Braaaammmmssss then yes the sound concept is lacking but nothing some…"

"Thank you my friend. Nothing amazing about it though, just simply a hymn repeated over and over again several times like an English hymn with each time in a new setting. I even kept it diatonic with no accidentals. I suck as a composer.  Timothy…"

"Trombone is mellower than bass trumpet, really?  OK, I guess I am really ignorant of brass timbres. :-/ Or maybe I'm confusing trombone with muted F horn. (I really like that buzzing muted horn sound, esp. at ff.)"

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion My new instrument you’ve probably never written for
"If you like mellow, you need to write for euphonium. From mellow to brightest or brassiest in this range is: euphonium, Rotary Kaiser Baritone, English/ French Baritone, German Tenor Horn, Trombone, and Bass Trumpet.  "

"I like more mellow, but does a trumpet need to get any louder? ;-)
OK, just kidding. Maybe I should write a concerto for this beautiful bass trumpet. :-P  (But that's after I get through my huge backlog of unfinished concertos and fugues, so don't…"

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion My new instrument you’ve probably never written for
"Hello HS! The range is an 8va lower than a regular Bb trumpet or the same range as trombone or euphonium. I’m not sure if you are familiar with rotary valve trumpets but they are both more mellow and louder than a regular piston trumpet. So in…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion My new instrument you’ve probably never written for
"What's the range of this beauty? Sounds like a mellower version of the trumpet with a lower register... would love to compose for it sometime. (Har har, like I have the time to do anything these days...)"

  • Thanks for the invite, Rodney. I was quite impressed by your Sins of the Old Testament pieces. Dance of the Golden  Calf was quite beguiling. I'm currently listening to BelgianComposer's new Double Bass Sonata (http://youtu.be/c4wIy1qyf1E). Check his Youtube channel out. I haven't run across him elsewhere, but his work is consistently first rate. Again, thanks for your work.

  • Thank you so much Alex!
