Scott Worthington presents “Ground Bass,” featuring music for bass and electronics by Jenny Olivia Johnson, Julia Wolfe, Alexandra Gardner, and more. Since hearing a festival of computer music during college, Worthington has consistently performed, composed, and commissioned electro-acoustic music for his instrument. The bass’s rich harmonic palette provides an immense range of sonic possibilities, from mangled webs of noise to ethereal harmonics. Each piece on this concert uses a computer to transform the sound of a bass, adding layers to the live performance. While these pieces share a basic electronic process, their outcomes are alternatively raucous, playful, melodious, and harsh.
