ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"While I have always enjoyed collaborating with many other musicians, the recording studio created for me an opportunity that could never have existed elsewhere: a completely integrated musical performance. The idea first came to me in the Fall of 2013 as I was beginning my final year as a doctoral student at Temple University in Philadelphia. By this time, I had developed largely separate careers as a trombonist, pianist, and arranger/composer. I began to imagine ways in which I could tie all of it together. After contemplating many possibilities, I eventually settled on this idea of an all-encompassing recording project.

Strohman Says is the product of nearly a year of planning and preparation. Each piece was carefully transcribed, arranged or composed specifically so that all the parts could be recorded one-at-a-time. This often required a unique recording process for each track to ensure synchronization. In many instances, particularly for extended rubato passages, this made any type of significant editing practically impossible.

Perhaps the most significant challenge was in synthesizing an entirely digital concert hall, since non-simultaneous multi-tracking in a physical concert hall merely multiplies the ambient noise of the room. We created this synthetic hall via meticulously sampled multidimensional convolution reverb of a real concert hall, sound imaging technology, and many hours of careful listening, adjusting and fine tuning.

Strohman Says is dedicated to each of my most influential former teachers/mentors: Pat Walter, Mike Chabitnoy, James Erdman, Matthew Vaughn, Amy Yocklovich, Dennis Sweigart, Rodney Miller, Scott Eggert, and Maurice Wright."

Greg Strohman has always enjoyed a diverse yet extensive musical background. From an early age he studied and pursued trombone, piano and music composition winning numerous accolades in all three areas. As a high school student, he appeared as a pianist on national public radio’s showcase for young classical musicians, “From the Top." As an undergraduate student, he was a three-time finalist for the International Trombone Association’s Larry Wiehe and Marstellar competitions. His compositions and arrangements have been performed and recorded by a wide range of ensembles and individuals throughout the greater Philadelphia and Harrisburg metropolitan areas.

Greg has performed and collaborated as either a trombonist or pianist with many internationally renowned musicians—including various present and former members of the Metropolitan Opera, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Opera Orchestra, United States Marine Band, Canadian Brass, Boston Brass, and American Studio Orchestra. He has taught various courses, lessons, and masterclasses at a variety of institutions—including Temple University, Lebanon Valley College, and Immaculata University.

Greg earned his Doctor of Musical Arts (D.M.A.) degree in trombone performance with a minor area in music theory from the Boyer College of Music and Dance at Temple University in Philadelphia during the spring of 2014 with his monograph dissertation entitled “Psychoacoustic Entropy Theory and Its Implications for Performance Practice.” He also earned a Master of Music (M.M.) degree in trombone performance from Temple in 2010. Prior to Temple University, Greg earned two Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees (one in trombone and the other in piano), and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in physics from Lebanon Valley College in Annville [PA]. His former teachers include Matthew Vaughn, Glenn Dodson, James Erdman, Dennis Sweigart, Scott Eggert and Rodney S. Miller.
