Simply two people playing trombone at the same time without any planning before-hand besides picking out the key, tempo, and first note.

Recorded yesterday, but I was only able to put up two of the recordings.

Comments are most welcome, as long as they are not pointless or wasteful. If you vote poorly, I highly urge you to explain your reasoning why. Although I can't just randomly fix things in this because it is hard to re-record improv. perfectly, it's best that you point out the flaws for the next time I record. It is also nice if you suggest how I can fix them.

Experimental

Hi samulis,

--Production--
This doesn't really focus on assembly as a positive trait per se, simply because it's just pure trombones without much effects added. So 'nuff said.

--Listenability--
I mean, it's alright. It's always good to listen to a bunch of trombones playing random crap. But after a while it gets a little tiring. This is more experimental than anything, so why not just add a couple of little touches here and there? Won't hurt :)

--Genius--
It's interesting how you guys react to each other's melodies, but not entertaining enough to hold my interest for 2 minutes :P

--Flair--
This definitely an interesting experiment, and not much more.

--Tilt--
I like your ambition. Depends on what your goals are: to make money, to make pleasing music, or to make music that's fun to play :) Thanks for letting me listen

--Production--: x/10
--Listenability--: 4/10
--Genius--: 6/10
--Flair--: 7/10
--Tilt--: 0/10

Vote 2/5

Verdict: Needs improvement!

Thanks once again for the constructive review.

I agree almost 100% with what you said, the goal was merely a test of the ability to read the other's actions fast enough to make a song without premeditation to make a piece of perfect quality.

If I manage to find another time to get into the recording studio with my friend, I'll look into seeing about finding some other instrumentalists on different instruments and see if a something can be achieved that way. :)

By the by, you can skip over the recordings if they bore you. They are more of an expression of style and an explanation of my musical background than actual compositions, simply because I never wrote down the notes or the keys or the rhythms.
