In this piece I’m working with the physicality of sound, using the double bass as a resonator for other sounds along with a compressor to highlight overtones and other very very small sounds.
In the piece above I am improvising with “white noise” and “breathing” sounds for a composition that Jen Wang wrote for me.
Performing with other musicians is an important part of my creative practice. In The Yes &, my improvisation duo with Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti, I use Anne’s viola as a live sound source for modular synthesis.
If you’ve listened to all of the works above, then we only have 5 minutes left in our half hour. Here is a grab bag of tracks, some of them are quite long (so long that they wouldn’t have fit in our half hour anyway) so feel free to skip around. Thanks for listening!
In this piece I use a fretless electric bass to control a modular synthesizer (using some fancy modules that transform the bass sound into control voltage–the kind of signal that drives a synth). It’s part of a collection of experiments with electric bass and electronics.
This is part of a series of text works I have utilizing audio of strategist John Boyd.
This music is made using the collaborative composition approach of J.B. Ledoux. Here is an album review for it.
