Product details

Dynamic Architecture I is a piece for double bass, laid on its back and played with three bows (one strung with a guitar string instead of horse hair), with an audio track embedded in the electronic score that is played from the score-player into the double bass through a transducer positioned under the fingerboard. The tones in the electronic part are tuned close to an unusual scordatura of the bass, C-B-E-A#, creating very subtle beatings and almost inaudible bass tones that make interesting companions to the subtones of the bowed tail-piece. 'Dynamic Architecture' is a term that describes urban architecture in which uncomfortable or aggressive designs is intended to stop people loitering or playing. These designs become the basis for the designs in the score and a metaphor for the detailed layering of sounds in the work.
