Denver Trumpeter and Composer Joshua Trinidad teamed up with New York photographer Chris Buck in efforts to release what is to be a groundbreaking album early this upcoming summer. Ten photographs captured by Chris Buck have been selected to inspire the music for the CD. Each piece is like a Soundtrack for the image.
“BUCK”, is an album that takes the listener not only on a sonic journey, but is rooted in the beauty and artistry of each photo. Some of the photos for this collaborative project include Chris’s work with Bjork, Robert Kennedy Jr. and many others. For a trumpeter and photographer to work together in creating a project such as this, is beyond unique. Here is the promo video:
