Deus Ex Machina - 4-Bass Tuba Quartet - Mike Forbes
Looking for something TOTALLY different for your 4-bass tuba quartet? Try this new offering from Mike Forbes that involves mouthpiece popping & tuba slapping percussion and even a some 4-part multiphonics toward the end. A "Deus Ex Machina" is a literary device used often in films where the hero has gotten themselves into a bind....the only way out is if the writer somehow finds a peculiar way (usually quite unbelievable) in which to save the hero from impending doom. In this case, the quartet uses special devices (percussion & multiphonics) to take audiences to places they never thought existed in the groovy world of tuba.
