is a piece for seven natural trumpets that Christopher wrote for a concert curated by the Master aus Licht trumpet students called 'New Light'.
The composition explores possibilities of the baroque trumpet note options that are limited to the harmonic overtone series. Contemplating the historical signal and communication function of the instrument and putting it in a modern spatialized setting surrounding the audience plus opening possibilities to explore modern playing techniques streams a new light on an old instrument.
