We are really excited to be releasing a new work from composer Daniel Potter this coming Monday, June 15th. It’s Potter’s 2nd release this year, following the ‘Modern Times’ & ‘Trident’ pieces released back in February.
‘2°C’ was written for 4 trumpets, 4 trombones and electronics derived from solely processing the recordings of the horns. ‘2°C’ continues Potter’s politically charged compositional subjects; this time taking on climate change. The note patterns and dynamics of the piece were plotted out using the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies’ Graph of Annual Mean Temperatures which is also represented in the cover art for the release.
