Stats for this track
Minimalist in nature, this set of constantly evolving variations over a repeated bass line is one of my favorite recent works. It shifts through many metrical changes, explores the nature of overtone, sound, and musical focus, has flashes of virtuosity, and needs good headphones or excellent speakers to appreciate fully. The timbre of three real bass players is difficult to convey though this medium, complex, rich, and foreboding at times. This bass trio was written for three of my students in 2012.
