Thursday, August 09, 2012

On this New Sounds, there's new music for bass, both electric and upright, bowed, plucked, or slapped, some bottom-heavy and grounding, some emotive and noodley - like the moody suite for electric bass by Jeffrey Roden, called "Seeds of Happiness." There's also music about salt. Yes, salt and salt marshes.

Listen for texture-rich music for by Marie-Soleil Belanger and Normand Guilbeault which pairs violins or erhu (Chinese two-stringed fiddle) with double bass. Plus, Tom Johnson's "Failing – a very difficult piece for bass," music by Basso Bongo, Robert Black, and more.
