Seattle Grunge

Work for Solo Tuba and Electronics

Contact to Purchase
Score - $18

Seattle Grunge pays tribute to the music of groups like Nirvana and Pearl Jam through a most unconventional means: the tuba. Providing a powerful bass voice, the tuba plays normally, but a microphone also drops down into the bell of the instrument which feeds the audio through two guitar pedals, turning the tuba into a monstrous and gritty bass guitar.
