Instrumentation:
Double Bass., Live Electronics

Beneath the Music from a Further Room is  really a solo for the double bass however , the sonic realm that the instrument creates ends up inhabiting  2 bass drums sitting on stage, which start to sing  as an extension of the instrument, coherently within the sonic pallet of the double bass. The piece is an attempt to play with the perceptual shifting that occurs from the breaking of the concert ritual by the taking over of the bass drums as environmental sounds (or sound installation) I am interested in re-orienting our listening habits.
