Logical Conclusions

For Double Bass and Max/MSP
June, 2018
Duration: ~10 mins

This piece takes audio from the composed and improvised material that the bassist generates and loops that audio, up to six times, changing the speed, pitch, and direction of the loop as the piece changes. The piece follows from small intervals that spin out of one central tone, and creates a web of sonic material from a relatively limited set of musical material.

I wrote this piece at the request of an incredible bassist, but no sooner than I finished it his bass split open and he was unable to practice it. So as of now, it languishes unplayed. I hope we have a chance to present it sometime in the near future. If you're interested in presenting it or performing it, please send me an email.

Accompanying Max/MSP patch available upon request.
