Abstract: Descriptive study about the routines of practice and performance by the Brazilian trombone quartet called
Trombominas, according to three axes: musical performance, phenomenology and musical memory as a cognitive function.
The group’s procedures are described within the perspective of the phenomenological referential, departing from
interviews with the members of the group and their subjective impressions. It aims at explaining how memory can act
as a key in the construction of musical meaning for the subjects of the performances.
Keywords: musical performance, memory, phenomenology, musical phenomenology.
