Underground Revisited

If you’ve been to the FONT website site recently you’ve probably noticed a few changes in the last couple of weeks. We’ve entered the blog-o-sphere and will be posting often on all things we see and hear happening in the New Trumpet World.

We’d also like to hear from you. If you have a blog, a recording, new composition, or just heard a great gig, let us know. We’ll help spread the word.

As the tapes come in from last weekends New Trumpet Underground, we’ll be posting some of the music and photos in our soon to be unveiled media portion of the site.

Here’s a sneak peak at this years FONT commission by Nadje Noordhuis for those of you that couldn’t make it. I’m looking forward to hearing it a second time.

Nadje Noordhuis’ FONT Commission is entitled “Transistor”, which celebrates the parallels of cultural diversity and musical cross-pollination in Australia and USA. The compositions will encompass a variety of styles, including Argentinean tango, energy-driven swing, European chamber jazz, tabla grooves and contemporary tone poems.
