I wrote this piece for trombone and loop pedal in 2017 over the course of my wife’s pregnancy with our first baby. The piece reflects the emotions and feelings that I went through as we experienced and braced ourselves for some of the biggest changes in our lives. Feelings of excitement, anxiety, self doubt, and overwhelming joy pass from one to the other, eventually culminating in a sense of deep peace and relaxation.
This piece was written with the BOSS RC-300 Loop Pedal specifically in mind, however, it can be performed with any loop pedal with the following capabilities:
- Three independent channels with varying lengths, with tempo and loop sync, and reverse capabilities for one of the channels.
- Microphone input.
- Headphone output for monitoring and additional click/rhythm track for time keeping.
