These videos are to be played simultaneously, in any order, in any number. They sound together to create your own setting of Cumulonimbus. You can start or stop the videos as you wish, listen to many or a few. Each listening experience is unique.

Listening suggestions: try just the high instruments (trumpets and flugelhorns), or just the low instruments (trombones, tuba, and euphoniums), or listen to any combination you choose. Please note that viewing multiple videos is not supported on mobiles or iOS devices.  

This project is comprised of four compositions for a spatialized (or isolated) ensemble, one for each section of the orchestra/band and inspired by a different type of cloud:
