International Trumpet Guild announces a call for submissions of new compositions for trumpet

Please direct any questions, or submissions to: newworks@trumpetguild.org

The International Trumpet Guild announces a call for submissions of new compositions for trumpet to be performed at the “New Works Recital” at the 2017 International Trumpet Guild Conference in Hershey, PA.

Submissions must have been composed within five years of the submission deadline date of August 15, 2016, and should be unpremiered or have received only limited exposure.

Score and separate trumpet part should be provided in PDF format, and a recording of a performance or electronic simulation should be provided in mp3 format. 

File names should clearly identify the work as follows:
composer-title.pdf
composer-title.mp3

Works should be submitted electronically via Email to newworks@trumpetguild.org.
Large files should be submitted using a filesharing service such as DropBox (http://www.dropbox.com), sharing with the same address.

Compositions may be submitted by a composer individually or by a trumpeter in partnership with a composer. If submitted by a composer alone, a chosen work will be performed at the conference by a trumpeter nominated by ITG New Works Committee. Inclusion of a work on the New Works Recital does not imply any financial obligation of the ITG beyond providing collaborative artists to perform. Composers and/or trumpeters will be responsible for all costs including conference registration.

Works will be reviewed by the New Works Committee, and notification of inclusion on the recital will be made by October 1, 2016.

This call does not specify instrumentation to allow for a wide range of possibilities, but please note that compositions of unusual duration or instrumentation may face extra-musical hurdles when under consideration by this committee. Materials will not be returned.

Please contact by email at: newworks@trumpetguild.org.

Top 10 Mistakes When Writing for Percussion

10. Indicating the wrong mallets for an instrument.
Brass mallets on vibes? Try a hammer on a violin!



9. Writing the glockenspiel part as heard.
You shouldn't have to climb a ladder of leger lines to read a glock part. Keep it in the staff.

8. When in doubt, adding more suspended cymbal.
This is a huge mistake made by arrangers. Yep, cymbals add automatic intensity to a piece, but so can a bass drum roll, a rousing hand drum part, exciting mallet licks, or a hundred other combinations. Well-written percussion parts stand out in the band and church repertoire.



7. Better means more complicated, right?
This is my main mistake. A percussion part can be simple enough for a middle school, but it is the ability to use the different tone colors of the percussion palette properly that indicates a maturity in writing, not that impossible part for the timpanist that has them playing timpani, gong, crash cymbals, and triangle in the span of two beats.

6. Never trust Band-in-a-Box to write the timpan…

Experimental Film - World Order #2 - Sabrina Pena Young

Experimental indie film World Order #2 originally created for the Turkey Cinema for Peace. A mix of images with the cinematic soundtrack of Sabrina Pena Young. (2003). The short film was filmed in an afternoon at my parent's home, with most special effects in-camera (ex. the "world' is really scrambled eggs with blue food coloring). Shot through glass decorative bulbs from my parent's patio. Student work.
