In April 2023, I composed new music for four double bassists and had the joy of debuting it live (watch a short clip of it here). After this debut, I expanded the composition to be suitable for six double bassists, and with generous financial support from the community and a fantastic recording engineer Pat Telfer, the music was recorded in July.
The composition of five distinct movements with approximately 40 minutes of duration embraces improvisation and showcases catchy melodies, harmonically evolving sections, dynamic rhythmic interactions, and the organic beauty of the double bass as a musical instrument. The recording will be released publicly after the completion of the post-production process.
