Here’s a short video clip from a recent performance by the Chamber Arts Brass Trio, resident faculty brass ensemble at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Of special note is that this was our first “official” performance with new trumpet faculty member Alex Noppe. Alex joined the music faculty at ULM this fall, having held a previous position at Indiana State University. We are delighted to have him on our faculty, and look forward to future performances together.
I did the recording with a Canon Vixia HF R10, a device I like more every time I use it. I’m still working on tweaking some microphone and other settings, so any issues with the video and/or audio quality are most likely user error. One way I plan to use the camera is to record an entire series of standard horn etudes – this will be a sizeable project, so it’ll probably have to wait until the summer!
