Today we travel across the pond to France. "Glisssssssssendo," written with 9 s's to represent each of the 9 members, is a very unique group that one of our ABEL classmates presented to us on "Obscure Brass Day." The group appears to defy the laws of gravity by gliding around on what one can only imagine to be Segways. Although not exclusively a brass ensemble, Glisssssssssendo represents a group that is developing new ideas in terms of musical performance. Check out their recording of Philip Glass' Lightning below!
