Rung in a Rickshaw
For Unaccompanied Trumpet by Gabriel Dharmoo
Gabriel Dharmoo and I met at Domaine Forget in 2005. There, he shared some of his music with me, and I remember being impressed by how strongly his personality shone through his compositions.
His music was inventive, witty, and engaging.
Collaborating with Gabriel and performing his music remained as goals in the back of my mind for several years, until finally the Reveille concert at Sound Symposium was on the horizon. Immediately I met with Gabriel and he set to work on a piece inspired by his travels studying south Indian carnatic music.
Sung in a Rickshaw was premiered on July 10 in St. John’s, NL, Canada. The video you see below introduced the first performance. In it, Gabriel Dharmoo narrates the work’s conception as pictures and noises from his travels bring you into the sound world of the piece.
