The Bullet and the Bass Trombone

1 Feb 2014

There’s an orchestra, trapped in a city during a military coup. Violence erupts, the orchestra becomes separated - lost - trying to find their way home. The composer is left to tell the story. An intricate, fractured narrative with a haunting soundtrack comes together like a mosaic: a whistling bird in the jungle, a gunfight at the airport, a murder in a forest of music stands… pieced together by a lone performer, trying to make sense of the chaos.
