Works for double bass ensemble and voices, multitracked with all materials played and sung by the composer. Each piece presents a distinct environment exploring contrast and tension to sculpt a dense collage of focused textures.
A quartet engaging with a limited set of gestures and articulations, each avoiding rise or decay. Vocals, microtonal and layered atop sparse plucks and spiccato fragments. Bowed swells of delicate, double stop harmonics, detuned yet melodic, a brief sense of serenity emerging from disquieting depths.
