    Miraphone factory video

    Not sure if this has been shared before. This is about a 7 minute video showing how Miraphone manufactures a tuba. Most have seen these before but what struck me was the audio track behind the video. They don't give credit but I'm pretty sure it's 'Sotto Voce' playing these licks.

    I like how that burly guy handles the whole horn against the polishing wheel. No gym membership needed there.

    I don’t think it’s Sotto Voce playing. Two things lead me to that conclusion. First, the style and articulation is VERY German (like what you’d hear from a blasmusik band at a Biergarten). Second is a conversation I had with Demondrae about melody shop where I got the impression he hadn’t performed it other than at the finale of the army conference.
