The Rocket explores the rather outer-space-like effect of playing a trombone into a piano.
The Rocket explores the rather outer-space-like effect of playing a trombone into a piano. With the piano lid raised and the sustain pedal down, playing a trombone, mostly loudly, into the body of the piano makes its strings resonate, and produces wonderful chords and sounds, reminiscent of alien bodies or remote atmospheres. The Rocket takes us up to stratospheric choirs and to ugly subterranean grumblings, and to sinister 1/6th-tone croaks (which confuse the piano somewhat). There are gentler tonalities and humbler chords, but all feel astral. It’s a cosmic voyage.
