Stone Song

Study Score, Downloadable

Solos

Soprano feature in reed 1. But you will need that your accordion, piano, bass player and drummer be very collaborative and almost soloistic as well.

Instrumentation

5 reeds, 4 trumpets (cups), 3 trombones (buckets), 1 bass trombone (bucket), accordion, guitar, piano, bass, drums. This piece uses a piece of pottery with small stones baked inside. You’ll have to experiment with a rough stoneware bowl or something to approximate the sound. I’d tried stones in a small wood box, and it wasn’t bright enough. I’m sure there are creative ways to get to the sound. Porcelain is too bright, must be clay, and maybe rough in texture. You’ll need a mic nice and close to the “stone.”
