Yesterday I performed my first virtual house concert, an idea I hope to continue through the COVID-19 crisis that has halted public performances around the globe. The archive of that stream is below.
Some other ideas include a shorter 12-tone/serial solo bass concert with works by Robert Morris, Erik Carlson, Charles Wuorinen, and perhaps others; improvisations with a new computer system I’m designing; other solo bass music; networked improvisations with others; etc. If you have ideas or pieces you’d like me to consider, please feel free to send them my way!
If I can get a good set up and balance performing with electronics, that will open more of my repertoire to this format. I think it will be possible, I just need some more time to experiment.
Please enjoy Eva-Maria Houben’s nachtstück (begins about 6:20), stay healthy, and stay home for now :)
I was lucky enough to be one of the bassists in an orchestra that recorded music for composer team Ajay Atul. It was the first Indian-produced film to be scored in Hollywood. They made a cool little promo video about the experience/session/music and it includes a surprising amount of bass section footage.
When I was at Stanford in April, the trio gave a concert of solo works in addition to our concert of music by Stanford composers. One of the pieces I played was Leah Asher‘s Fiction. It’s a graphic score and I made a score following video. Hope you enjoy it.
