ContraTear is a musical instrument that I've build to use for a live theatre performance by Visões Úteis, based on Patrick Süskind's "The Contrabass". It has been used in several concerts, including John Zorn's "Cobra" presentation at Casa da Música (Oporto, 30th October 2005). Some people asked me what the instrument was and how it was played, so I made some videos. In this third video I try to illustrate the different ways of playing. The instrument is amplified by a double pickup (Big Twin, by K&K), under its bridge. All sound is live, and a simple guitar fx module is used for the loop-like-delay and reverb.
