The Trumpet Shall Sound - Home

The Trumpet Shall Sound - Home


Trumpet & Organ

Picture
The festive and uplifting sound of this combination is well known in works like Purcell's Trumpet Tune.
Repertoire ranges from baroque to contemporary including highly virtuosic transcriptions and elegant reflective slow melodies.


The Trumpet Shall Sound CD - Customer thoughts so far..........
From DP - Isle of Arran
I've had a whale of a time listening to your new CD. You've regained my faith in what I believed was the lost art of lyrical trumpet playing, with a GENUINE cantabile quality and not a harsh sound with an occasional bit of vibrato as some players do in pretence of playing 'in a lyri...
cal style'. Not that it's just a CD of slow, lyrical playing as there are plenty of technical fireworks in the baroque pieces, but none of this would be effective without Matt's sympathetic registrations in accompaniment, allied to his own excellence in his solo pieces.
Well done and let's hope we have more recordings from the pair of you!

From CW - North East
I am really enjoying listening to the CD - Tico Tico had me dancing around whilst I was doing the ironing! The recording really captures the amazing sound that you both make and the same as the live concerts you capture every emotion from sheer joy to the most heartfelt sadness. Congratulations and good luck.
A trumpet in the dark
Last Saturday, Grant Golding and Matt Edwards gave a marvellously impressive concert in Lamlash Church, Matt demonstrating the sonorities of its magnificent organ coupled with Grant ‘s glorious playing of the trumpet. This outstanding musician sustained a horrific accident last autumn when on a sponsored Munro climb, suffering a broken leg and fractured skull that threatened his life, and it was in great thankfulness that a large audience listened spellbound to his soaring purity of tone. Coming to a trumpet piece played to a pre-recorded track that evoked the open-ness of moor and sea, Grant pointed out that Earth Hour was taking place, in which lights were being extinguished in a time-wave across the world, in recognition of our need for action on Climate Change. Lamlash Church was accordingly reduced to a single reading lamp for the trumpeter, taking its modest place with the more spectacular dimming of Las Vegas, the Eiffel Tower, the Forbidden City in Beijing, and the Egyptian pyramids. It was a strangely evocative experience. When the lights went on again we were into the exotic rhythms and braddadoccio of Carmen, where Matt Edwards managed to be a whole orchestra, backing Grant in brazen toreador mode. An astonishing evening. And in the darkened church, perhaps many a listener sent up a quiet prayer of thanks that Grant Golding is still alive and sharing his wonderful talents with appreciative audiences.

New Oyster wave device

New Oyster wave device



New Oyster wave device13/07/2011Wave energy developer Aquamarine Power today revealed the latest in leading edge hydro electric wave energy technology.First Minister Alex Salmond unveiled the next generation full-scale Oyster 800KW device at Burntisland Fabrications (BiFab) yard in Methil, Fife where it was built.The Oyster 800 can generate 250 per cent more power at one third of the cost of the first full-scale 315kW Oyster device (Oyster 1), which was installed and grid-connected at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney in late 2009 and operated through two winters and delivered over 6,000 operating hours.The first Oyster 800 will now be transported by sea to EMEC for installation with another two being deployed in 2012 and 2013, linked to an onshore hydro-electric plant in a 2.4MW array.The Oyster 800 project has been supported with grant funding from Scottish Enterprise and the Carbon Trust Marine Renewables Proving Fund.Mr Salmond said:"Today is a significant day for Aquamarine Power and for Scotland's wider offshore renewables sector, which continues to develop a wide range of low carbon energy technologies to enable us to fully harness the huge energy resources around our own coast and contribute to global efforts to expand clean, green electricity generation."Aquamarine Power has made huge progress in less than two years since its first Oyster device was connected to the grid at EMEC - proving the technology and driving down costs - a testament to the vision, commitment and expertise throughout the company. I'm delighted that the Scottish Government and our public sector partners have been able to support the progress of this exciting frontier technology."BiFab is another Scottish success story which, by successfully delivering the Oyster 800 device, has underlined once again the skills of its workforce and its capability to manufacture a wide and diverse range of fabrications for offshore energy developers. Scotland is in the rapids of a renewables revolution and the delivery of the new, more efficient and powerful Oyster 800 device represents a new surge towards the deployment of commercially competitive wave power arrays to deliver clean, green energy."Martin McAdam, Chief Executive Officer of Aquamarine Power, commented:"The Oyster 800 is a significant advance on our first Oyster device. Our dedicated engineering and R&D teams have designed it to be simpler, more robust and more efficient. This means we can offer 250 per cent more power at a third of the cost. Our goal is to make future Oysters cost competitive within the next few years. The Oyster 800 will help us gather the data that we need to deliver on that."A farm of just 20 Oyster 800 devices would generate sufficient power for up to 15,000 homes. There are often waves when there is no wind and marine energy offers an essential part of Scotland's future low carbon energy mix. I am grateful to BiFab for their immense professionalism in delivering Oyster, to the First Minister for honouring us by unveiling it and to our investors for their continuing support. Above all I would like to thank the Aquamarine Power team for their hard work and dedication in making the idea of marine energy a reality."John Robertson, Managing Director of BiFab, said:"We are delighted to be involved with Aquamarine Power as the manufacturer of this leading and innovative solution for wave energy. The challenge for all companies operating in the renewables sector is bringing the products to market at a competitive value, and the ability to deliver large quantities of units on an annual basis. Oyster 800 is the next step in demonstrating this excellent product in wave technology."We are very impressed with the team at Aquamarine Power and their proactive approach in development, design engineering and the manufacturing of the Oyster 800. We are confident that Aquamarine will be a leading supplier of wave energy devices in the UK and Internationally. We wish them continued success and we look forward to a long term relationship between our companies as Aquamarine Power continues to grow from strength to strength."Crawford Gillies, Chairman of Scottish Enterprise, said:"This is an exciting time for Scotland's renewables industry, and today's announcement builds on the success that Aquamarine Power has already achieved to date. "We have worked closely with the company to support its ambitious growth plans and innovative products. We know there is a huge global appetite for clean and sustainable energy and, with companies like Aquamarine Power, Scotland is clearly demonstrating its leadership in wave energy innovation."Dr Stephen Wyatt, Head of Technology Acceleration at The Carbon Trust, said:"Our support to Aquamarine Power, via the MRPF and our Marine Energy Accelerator, has been instrumental in helping the development of this device being launched today. As a whole we believe the sector the UK could capture just under a quarter of the global marine energy market. Our new report launched this week shows that marine energy has a bright future and is one of the UK's most exciting green growth sectors and one where the UK has a real lead."Wave and tidal stream could provide a fifth of our electricity needs and be a major 'made in Britain' success. Our new analysis has found that the best marine energy sites could be cost competitive with nuclear and onshore wind by 2025. The wave and tidal sector could generate up to #76 billion to the UK economy by 2050, and could also generate over 68,000 UK jobs. Key to unlocking this potential prize is continued support and innovation for the sector as it moves from a pre-commercial to commercial development stage."

With the generous support of caring people around the world, the Food for People facility in Bantoli, India has been operating for five years. In this TPRF blog post, a young student expresses how the kindness manifested via TPRF's Food for People has transformed his life and given him hope. His humble expression of gratitude is deeply moving. http://bit.ly/pjUmtM

Another disaster looms in the horn of Africa and the effects from Global climate change will only ensure that Africa will face further and more wide spread drought resulting in Millions dying ..

At the age of fifty and being lucky enough to have been born in a well off country i am sick and tired that time after time our tele media etc is filled will disasters and still the same questions are asked again and again never every being resolved.
The amount of money spent on the military world wide in the year 2010

Summarizing some key details from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)’s recent trends summary:
  • World military expenditure in 2010 is estimated to have reached $1.62 trillion in current dollars;
  • This represents a 1.3 per cent increase in real terms since 2009 and a 50 per cent increase since 2001;
  • This corresponds to 2.6 per cent of world gross domestic product (GDP), or approximately $236 for each person in the world;
  • The USA with its massive spending budget, is the principal determinant of the current world trend, and its military expenditure now accounts for just under half of the world total, at 43% of the world total;

A tiny fraction of this directed to and ensuring that this never happens again is well within our capabilities


It is time the guys with power got of their fat arses and stopped gorging on 5star meals and start to do what they were voted in to do . enough of the BULLSHIT we have heard it time and time again .

They are able to at a drop of a hat invade another country but to react to the signs of an impending disaster they squirm on their fat arses .

BBC - BBC Two Programmes - ArtWorks Scotland, Scotland Rocks at South by Southwest


In March, 2000 bands descended on Austin, Texas hoping to make a splash at the world's largest music festival - South by Southwest. Among those keen to launch their careers in the USA were a clutch of Scottish acts including Rachel Sermanni, Unicorn Kid, Withered Hand and Admiral Fallow. ArtWorks Scotland followed them to the four-day festival to see if they had what it takes to crack America.

I was left speechless by the actions of this publication and hope that you will join me in letting them know that what has been done is contemptible and their product is no longer welcome. Stop buying this awful rag. Hit them in the wallet. It's the only thing they will understand.

Positions

  1. It is beyond everything acceptable and respectable for any news outlet to hack private phones
  2. To use and abuse, by hacking, the mobile phones of murdered children for the sake of readers numbers is despicable beyond words.
  3. Out of respect for those caught up in their hacking nonsense, we should stop buying this publication.

The pool ( The suppression of creativity) a wee tale from the dafthermit ( narrated) a wee film from the Scratchy Heed Film studio


















                                                         The Pool
                                      ( The suppression of creativity)


On that day when the moon first kisses the sun before embracing her fully
if you are brave enough ?

Take a good strong stick and head south west from the bus

Eventually you will come to a deep scar from a long gone ice sheet

Climb the banking on the other side

But be CAREFUL

And through the golden mist you will see the pool emerge.
Twenty yards or less away.
The pool it’s waters black and still.

The edge a perfect circle.

It’s banking falling away vertically to a depth i know not what.

I have been to it many many times

On each occasion taking a longer and longer rope

With a moss covered stone as a weight attached

I have thrown it to the centre of the pool .

And foot after foot it descends.

But never never has it reached the bottom .

The water never moves, no stars are ever reflected,no clouds ever dance on the still still water.

No matter how cold the surrounding ground the water never freezes , even when Loch droma has long since frozen to a depth of 30 inches or more .

The water stays clear and dark

Never moving,no sign of life from it’s dark dark black water .

But as i said, if on the day when the moon dances infront of the sun

Wait till the darkness fully envelopes the glen , then head to the pool .

I am sure like me, the site that will greet you when you climb the scar

Will halt you in your tracks.

From the edge of the pool and stretching oot ten yards and forming another perfect circle .

Purple fragrant heather will be in bloom no matter the time of year .

As you approach the waters edge you will see a small circle of gold in those dark waters .

Slowly at first it will ripple outwards to the edge .

Then in an instant, GONE.

The waters blacker and stiller than before.

The wind will start in the high glen and roar .


Doon the sheer cliff.


Racing to where you stand .

Then as it hits you with all it’s force it will STOP.

Quietness will embrace you and beyond no sound, no birds will call, no trees will bend, NOTHING .

From this will come at first a silent whisper

But as you lean into it to try to listen

That too will drift away .

The the waters will rise first one foot then ten , before plunging down the side of the pool.

Further and further until no longer visible.

But my friend don’t be scared open your eyes and your heart.

From the depths first one spirit closely followed by another .

Till thousands will fly from the depths the whole glen is filled with laugter and song .


The moon still covering the sun will cast a golden glow.

The stars will shine like never before.

But as the sun emerges from behind the moon to climb the horizon.

All will return to the pool.

And quiet will fill the glen.


The heather will wilt and die , the water returning at first a deep deep blue but quickly it to will become black and lifeless again.

Then from the middle of the water a last scream will be heard .


which will fill your heart with hope.

FREEDOM FREEDOM

Creation

Creating something new, a picture ,story or film the many hours it
takes to produce the final piece frame by frame never sure when to
stop. The head scratching the tears , the frustration the sheer joy at
bringing a wee dream to reality
. the wonder of creation . Then the moment it is sent oot to the world

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
