Bass- Josh Lambert Recording Engineer- Mark Vaughn Electronics- Christopher Poovey
'only through fractures may light shine' explores the gritty sounds of the double bass through the use of string multiphonics, overpressure, and bowing behind the bridge and tail piece. The electronics in the piece augment the bass’s capabilities further by emphasizing the inharmonic, crunchy, and wispy sounds that are not idiomatic of the bass. Together, both parts of 'only through fractures' create an experience where sounds are put into new contexts in order to find beauty in what may normally be considered noise. 'only through fractures' was started at the Atlantic Center of the Arts in New Smyrna Beach Florida and I thank the Atlantic Center for the wonderful residency.
