23 of New York’s finest low brass musicians join forces to perform a bass-quaking cover of Game Of Thrones rousing opening theme music.
A few New York City low brass players were joking around at a gig, talking about how much fun it would be to record an arrangement of some cool piece of music with an “extra’ low” low brass section. (Meaning: an extra special amount of bass trombone players, along with a tuba and a few tenor trombones.) An epic piece of music like the Game of Thrones theme would be perfect for this. The idea almost never got off the ground, due to the expected difficulties in putting something like this together.
They realized there was actually a 90 min timeslot on a random Tuesday afternoon when 6 contrabass trombone players were all going to be free at once. It was time to do it. Once you get Six Contra players in one place, you either run away fast – or join in. Seventeen other top orchestral and commercial NYC low brass players joined them, bringing the ensemble to 23 players, and this is the result.
Enjoy the sound!
