    Asteroids

    Asteroids is part of Galactica Suite. The bassoonist will have breathing problems unless he or she is twins. Probably should be two basooonist to stagger the breathing. The percussions probably should be two to a part, to give weary arms a break. The trumpet and clarinet problems will be mostly breath control. This is the easy version! The original would cause pulmonary failure and cardiac arrest in a sturdy robot!

    Bassoon Asteroids from outer space! This certainly would be difficult to play by a mere earthling - can't imagine what the original was like! I enjoyed this very much Richard.

    Thanks for posting this.

    This is pretty crazy Richard but very cool. After taking woodwinds tech courses in college I would concur the bassoonist would be quite stressed after attempting this peace. Circle breathing would be one way of attempting the part. As for the percussionist, put him on steroids.
    Nice very nice!
