Trombone Duet Captured Using Cameras Attached to the Slides

New York Philharmonic trombonist David Finlayson scored an viral Internet hit earlier this month after attaching a GoPro camera to his instrument’s slide and then capturing quirky footage with the setup.

If you enjoyed that creative point of view, you’ll be delighted to know that the awesome just got awesomer: National Symphony principal trombonist Craig Mulcahy used the exact same concept to record himself playing the 2nd trombone part of the same song. He then combined the two videos into the amazing visual and auditory experience seen above. The video is titled, “Slidecam Duet.”

GoPro Attached to a Trombone Captures Footage Synced to Music

Every so often, we come across a creative video created by someone who decided to mount his or her camera to somewhere or something strange. Examples include a wedding bouquet, inside an underwater torpedo, on the back of a corgi, on a stick, and on a sword.

Here’s a new clever camera-mounting idea that has the web abuzz: for the video above, trombonist David Finlayson (a member of the New York Philharmonic) recorded himself practicing with a GoPro camera attached to the instrument’s slide. The resulting video has camera moves that are perfectly (and naturally) synced with the background music!

Update: Well, shucks — it appears that Finlayson has pulled his own video…


Update: Finlayson has the same video available for viewing over on his personal website.
