As a timeless instrument that comes mainly from animal horns and has fascinated different cultures and has thousands of years of existence and continues to be exploited to this day.
The trombone is a metal wind instrument. Its sound is produced thanks to the vibration of the interpreter’s lips in the so-called nozzle part from the air column (air flow). The different notes are obtained by the movement of a mobile tube, called a rod, lengthening the distance that the air in vibration must travel, thus producing sounds that can also be controlled with a greater or lesser pressure of the air blown by the interpreter in the rod Seven different positions are differentiated along the stick. The more the air column is lengthened with each position, the sound produced is more severe than in the previous one. However, there are also trombones with valves. Like almost all the instruments of this metal wind family, the rod trombone is made of brass (although many factories now also opt for copper and silver baths), and consists of a cylindrical and open tube wound on itself .
It is in this century that composers have exploited all the possibilities of the trombone, not only in the orchestra (confiding important solos), but also in its role as a solo instrument, since literature for solo trombone has increased considerably.
Dead Can Dance:
The name Dead Can Dance means to put life back into something that is dead, or that has not been used for a long time. Some of the instruments they use are old or rare in Western music. Perhaps the first thing we should try to decipher before talking about Dead Can Dance, is the origin and meaning of their name, which according to statements by Gerrard and Perry was born from an extensive process of meditation, before the need to inject new life into music and instruments that could be considered as dead and obsolete. It is precisely this interpretation that justifies the use of a whole range of musical elements, ranging from the most common, such as the guitar, keyboards, percussion and synthesizers, to others of much more classical nuances, such as the bagpipe , the violin, the violoncello, the tuba, the yang-chin or the hurdy-gurdy.
