Scott Worthington is a double bassist and composer based in Los Angeles.
Originally a project for The Broad, I got permission to upload my complete performance of James Tenney’s Beast; a performance live from my house!
You can watch The Broad’s project L.A. Mavericks: John Baldessari and James Tenney here.
NEW ALBUM: works by john cage
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 (music starts at about 6:20), stay healthy, and stay home for now :)
I’m very happy to have played some bass on Isaac Shankler‘s record that was an I Care If You Listen Editor’s Pick this year. The list has also given me some music to check out while it’s still 2019 :)
Check out the album on bandcamp.
