Summer Showcase: Shape of my Heart by Matt Powell

My trumpet cover of one of my favourite pieces - Shape of my heart by Sting. Video shot at an abandoned pre-fab house that I discovered near where I live. It seemed an ideal location for the sound and emotion of this piece.

During lock-down I created a Youtube channel (Matt Powell Trumpet) where I have made and uploaded music that I have created.  I have produced all of my content myself from the sound engineering through to the video editing so have learnt a lot of new skills.  Often I have filmed the video outside which is the case of the video that I am show-casing.  This was filmed at an abandoned pre-fab house which seemed the perfect location for Shape of my Heart.  Most of my work is played by ear or improvised - although I do use sheet music for the classical pieces that I have recorded.

    I loved this piece, it felt very peaceful. I'm so happy to hear you used lockdown to showcase your talent and to learn new skills! I don't know much about music but to me the idea of you playing by ear and improvisation is really impressive.
