Reframe and Redirect… A More Thoughtful Way to Practice the Trumpet

"I've GOT to figure this out" can quickly turn toxic when you add, "…or else [insert dire prediction of future success or failure here]." What if you reframed that thought and made it simply, "I WILL figure this out"? That small change can make a huge difference.

Simon Höfele — Bulak’s Fantasy Op. 15 (Neue Meister)

Always eager to try something new, the curious and passionate Simon Höfele contacted Turkish composer Kaan Bulak in 2019 in search of a piece he could perform at the BBC Radio 3 Open Ear concert. Bulak — who has become known for his electroacoustic ensemble and unique compositions spanning contemporary and classical music — had nothing in store to offer and so decided to write a piece from scratch for the occasion. In the resulting piece, Fantasy Op. 15, now released as a joint EP by Kaan Bulak and Simon Höfele on Neue Meister, Bulak transformed Höfele's recordings into sound effects that complement his live performance on stage. Listen here to this fascinating new piece of the repertoire.
