Mantra for trumpet and drone
Bryn Harrison - 1998

The title refers to a word or sound used as an aid to meditation in Buddhist practise. The piece focuses on a constant tone that is subject to slight variations in duration and timbre. This tone is never played in the same way twice and requires a high level of concentration on behalf of the performer. It was written for Stephen Altoft. The drone was prepared by Ewan Stefani.
