Petrified, for double bass & live electronics

Petrified for double bass & live electronics showcases the incredible expressive range of the instrument.

Petrified is a reflection on the plastic nature of stones and rocks. The different states of the piece include Explosion, Ebullition, Expansion, Erosion, Effusion and Eruption.

The live electronics may be performed in different ways:

  • a musician performs live electronics as designed and provided by the composer, or a variation thereof, in a duet with the bassist.
  • a musician performs improvised live electronics in a duet with the bassist.
  • the bassist performs by themselves using the live electronics as designed and provided by the composer, or a variation thereof.
  • the bassist performs improvised live electronics at the same time as the instrumental part.

You will get the score and the original program for Petrified, version for double bass & live electronics.
