S5-20: Sound the Horns


“Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn.”  – Charlie Parker

The Brass Bodies study is a research project studying how the differences in male vs. female physiology affects not only the way women are taught brass instruments, but how these differences reinforce gender bias in in the music industry.  This episode showcases some wonderfully talented women playing and composing for brass instruments.
