[Untitled, 2012 ]

[Untitled, 2012] is a composition for contrabass and electronics. The electronic sounds provide the role of accompaniment – a pre-composed “rhythm section” – and the bass player takes the lead role as the “soloist.” A pre-recorded soundtrack functions as a rhythmic grid into which the bass player interweaves the instrumental part in real time. The bass player can also stop the soundtrack at any point for an unlimited period – to “interrupt” the automated tape progression – and freely elaborate on one notated event while the electronic timeline freezes at the moment it was paused.
