Alien Loop de Loops for trombone and electronic recordingAward Winner! ALIEN LOOP DE LOOPS for trombone or (bass trombone) and electronic recording by Howard J. Buss is a playful and capricious fantasy piece designed to appeal to a wide range of audiences. The title refers to both programmatic and technical elements in the composition. The composer envisioned a trombonist performing outside in an open area during an air show by an alien craft. During the opening section he/she is playing unaccompanied, but then is joined by the recording which contains sounds generated by traditional instruments as well as an "alien" voice, the spacecraft, and various electronic effects. Technically, the title refers to how the recording was made. It consists of numerous sound loops combined to form an imaginative and picturesque sonic tapestry. It is best played on a trombone with an F-attachment. The general tessitura of the work also allows it to be performed on a bass trombone. Alien Loop de Loops was winner of the 2015 American Trombone Workshop National Composition Competition sponsored by the U. S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own.” The publication includes the sheet music and a CD (attached to the inside of the back cover) that contains a performance track and the accompaniment track. (6’47”)

DISCOURSE (1962) by Edward Troupin. In versions for trumpet and trombone*, and flute and trombone*. Edward Troupin (1925-2004) enjoyed an international reputation as a composer of instrumental music. Throughout his long and illustrious career as a professor of music at Ithaca College and later the University of Florida, he inspired numerous young composers. Mr. Troupin received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard University with a major in mathematics. Later he earned his master of music degree from the University of Michigan, where he studied with Ross Lee Finney. Troupin’s sound-world is dramatic and full of vitality.

This duo is in 5 short movements: Assertion, Reflection, Eulogy, Fantasy and Comedy. The colorful, contrasting sections combine in charming balance to make a memorable concert feature. (8’) Grade V.

DIVERSIONS (2009) for flute & trombone duo by Howard J. Buss. The 4 movements  are programmatic in a general way: First Impressions is a friendly musical conversation reflecting the ebb and flow of ideas that two people may exchange and develop when meeting the first time. The music has an easygoing quality with the discourse becoming quite excited at times. The Challenge begins with a flute cadenza that highlights  the agility the instrument with rapid tonguing, quick dashes of sound, and trills. When the trombonist enters  and demonstrates to the surprised flutist the ability to execute similar passages also with agility and finesse, it becomes apparent that a challenge has been issued.  For the remainder of the movement the two players try to impress one another with their individual technical prowess.  The manner in which the two finish the movement together suggests the contest is a draw. By Starlight  has a beautiful and romantic atmosphere. The lyricism is  woven into a predominately consonant harmonic tapestry that at times melts into poignant dissonance. By contrast, the freewheeling final movement, Carnival, is bright and exuberant.   (12’30”  Grade VI. YouTube video of a live performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPPiWm0XTwc

Buss in 5 movements: The Dog Who Chased a Lion, The Astronomer, The Camel Who Wanted Horns, The Crow and the Pitcher, and The Rabbits and the Frogs.

This piece is a hit with all types of audiences, including those comprised of children! It makes a great concert feature and also is highly effective on out-reach concerts in the schools. “Buss employs a variety of meters, tonalities, and an equality of parts to set this duet apart from other instrumental duos of mixed descent. This is a captivating achievement of great variety and craftsmanship.” - reviewed by Joel Elias, California State University, Sacramento in the July 2005 International Trombone Association Journal, Vol. 33, No. 3 - (13’) Grade V.

The melody is introduced by the trombone and is passed back and forth throughout. In the enchanting second movement, Slow Dance, the musical material undergoes continuous development with the equality of the parts being paramount. The energetic final movement, Irish Jig, opens with an intriguing mixed meter section which leads to the rousing jig. It concludes with an exciting and frenzied accelerando and fugue. This work is fun to perform and has a great audience appeal! Recorded on the CD Dances and Dreams [Mark Records 8290-MCD]  (11’30”)  Grade IV.
