Trumpets Against Trump Performance Score


Trumpets Against Trump was a band made up entirely of trumpet players, who gathered to perform a discordant drone piece whenever Donald Trump visited the UK during his presidency. Blowing badly on our lowest notes as an act of therapeutic exorcism, where words failed, in solidarity with all those affected by Trump and his policies. Anyone with a trumpet was invited to join the band, musicians and non-musicians. There were no auditions – the worse the better. The band was disbanded on 7th November 2020. BLAST FASCISM –xx–((

These performance scores were given out to band members at each performance. They are A5 in size, two-sided, printed on a riso machine in red and blue ink on off-white paper.
