3 Questions for Callum G’Froerer [VIDEO]

In these short interviews I ask musicians and composers, from various backgrounds, the same three simple questions about music.
  1. Why do you have music in your life?
  2. How do you make music?
  3. What excites you musically right now?

I will be presenting these once a week over the next few months with local, national and international musicians and composers.

In this episode I’m talking to Melbourne-based trumpet player and composer Callum G’Froerer.

Born in 1988, Callum G’Froerer is active in various improvised and notated musical settings. Originally from sunny Perth, he was based in Berlin from 2015-2018, and previously in Melbourne from 2012-2014. Present and past projects include: The Sculpted Trumpet, an internationally-touring recital of new electro-acoustic works for double-bell trumpet; contemporary chamber ensemble Smallroom; bass/piano/trumpet trio DRUM with Andy Butler and Jonathan Heilbron; Marco Blaauws Monochrome multiple-trumpet project with performances of Anthony Braxtons Composition No. 103, early and contemporary brass music with Brass Commons; improvising ensemble Phonetic Orchestra; new music quartet Cathexis; trumpet/double bass duo with Jonathan Heilbron.
