Live! From Somewhere: Chris O'Brien


Graduate certificate student Chris O’Brien is not only a talented trumpeter, but he’s also a whiz at video production. So when classes moved online, he began recording performances at home with his brass quintet, Two Button Brass, and the five Thornton musicians even started their own TBB Live series.


For his performance of Nick Homes’ “Memphis,” O'Brien looked closer to home for his rhythm section. “I wanted to do a collaboration with my quarantine buddy, Kara, who is a dancer but not a musician. So, I sampled her clapping along to my multi-tracked performance.”
