Matt Kline on Double Bass in NYC

Matt Kline is going to be doing a performance of works for double bass in NYC at Scholes Street Studio. I’ve seen him play in person and in videos. He’s wickedly good, catch this East Coast appearance if you can!

  • Brian Ferneyhough – Trittico Per G.S.
  • Kenneth Gaburo – INSIDE

Leap of Faith (Matthew Kline) performed by Matthew Kline

Another dose of awesome from the Fresh Inc festival and Matthew Kline.

There’s a beep that goes off part way through that reminded me of this one time I saw Kronos doing Black Angels and in the middle movement, when everything is all quiet and peaceful, an older woman in the audience’s phone rings and then the woman answers it and proceeds to have a short conversation with the caller.

The beep in this, however, isn’t quite so intrusive. Perhaps owing to the steady-rhythm nature of the work. Hell, maybe it was planned or a general feature of the Racine Art Museum. Either way, enjoy this dose of bass textures.
