Hardest working bassist in new music, Scott Worthington, doing Kaija Saariaho’s Folia.
Scott Worthington and Randy Gibson premiere Gibson’s “Descending the Starfield Symmetry at Artshare LA.
The work features double bass, and an environment of sine waves, video and delay. This will, of course, be awesome.
Scott Worthington will be premiering a double bass version of Clarence Barlow’s …until….
In the week ahead we’ve got prolific bassist Scott Worthington premiering a double bass work in LA.
In the week behind I posted a video on double bass bow making by JJ Augagneur, a quick brain dump of double bass (or anything really) performance ideas that aren’t recitals. some video of double bass & electronics featuring Kyle Motl, an LSO masterclass on auditioning for bass, and Upton Bass on the ever popular “how to put a bass in a car” topic.
As always: If you are doing a recital or performance with contemporary works for double bass on the program please let me know (Twitter: @patternroot or best of all, make a webpage somewhere with a headline that says something like “double bass recital insert-date-here” so everyone can find it!).
I should probably do an article in entrepreneurial arts as a how-to on making a reasonable web page for shows. So many that I find (especially at schools) where the only information is who is playing, what time, and where. It would be so much nicer to have information about the program etc. Maybe this week I’ll write something for this.
