19 short pieces in 19 divisions of the octave commissioned over a 5 year period by trumpeter Stephen Altoft - this is the first collection of pieces for this specially adapted instrument, which can play 19 equal divisions of the octave using an additional valve and tubing.

The pieces reflect a wide range of styles and countries with composers representing many different genres and approaches. Slightly more than half the tracks are for solo trumpet and others include electronics and voice. In one piece Altoft is joined by Lee Forrest Ferguson on woodblock.

Lasting for 70 minutes, this is the seventh in the series of Microtonal Project's releases.

This project is documented at: Visit The Microtonal Trumpet website
