From the composer:
Lobster Telephone is a short, quirky “novelty” piece that was inspired and titled after the 1936 surrealistic object by the famed artist Salvador Dali. My goal was to compose a piece that sonically matched the visual creativity and absurdity of the object.
The players are encouraged to experiment with using a wide variety of mutes throughout the piece. To get ideas regarding implementing other sound effects and accessory percussion, please refer to the studio recording of the piece on the “Obsessed With Treasure” album that can be found on all digital music platforms.
