dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this document is to help trombonists familiarize themselves with the genre of solo trombone music with pre-recorded electroacoustic accompaniment. A survey was taken of trombone instructors in the United States and Canada, asking participants to identify pieces they would recommend for use in a collegiate studio. Two lesser-known pieces not identified in the survey, Changes: Open Style (1965) by Larry Austin and I Was Like Wow (2004) by Jacob Ter Veldhuis, were chosen to be featured and analyzed in detail in Chapters 2 and 3—the Austin, composed in 1965, represents the older style of electroacoustic music, while the Ter Veldhuis, composed in 2006, is representative of the style in use today. These pieces are included with those that were identified in the survey in Chapter 4, an annotated list of works for trombone and electroacoustic music. In this list, information is provided in order to assist a trombonist who may want to choose a work to study, such as the range, mutes, and extended techniques required to play each work, as well as some information about musical style.
