Music for Double Bass & Computer, No. 3 -- Edward Stumpp, Mills College

Music for Double Bass and Computer, No. 3 is the kind
of piece I have wanted to compose for some time. When
I originally started to compose electronic music I felt as if
I left my instrument behind. The first two installments of
Music for Double Bass and Computer were attempts to
bring these two practices together. I used both synthesis
and signal processing in those pieces. Though I tired it
never quite felt comfortable, the Computer and Double
bass always seemed to clash. With Music for Double
Bass and Computer No. 3 I used a different approach,
I decided to stick with a simple technical concept and
use the timbre of my Double Bass exclusively. I sample
a pitch for each section. These pitches are then run
through various playback speeds, filters and delays.
What results is texture that expands upon the Double
Bass creating harmonies to be performed over. The
sounds combine to create a timbre that is eerily familiar.
