Recorded for Katy Hebditch’s 16th Birthday. Microphones were placed about 1 metre from trombone so that it wouldn’t sound too ‘raspy’, but it couldn’t be placed further because of space issues and room sound. All windows and doors were closed, fans were powered off. Recording was layered one at a time.

My playing was horrible! (just got the trombone and wasn’t used to it yet, as well as not being warmed up)
