Awesome of the Week

Awesome of the Week

by Melissa Wimbish

I was hanging out with 4 bassoon players yesterday and let me tell you…it’s another world, people! Turns out that they do exactly what we do when they hang out: Nerd out listening to things that make them amazed at their instrument.

This particular piece blew my friggin’ mind. It’s a circular breathing situation — so homeboy doesn’t take one breath the ENTIRE time!!!! Can you believe that??? And some of the noises he makes are sounds that up until now I thought I would only hear on the highway or in the bowels of a spaceship.

Observing bassoon players in their natural state on a Sunday afternoon was awesome.
