Distant Wave

performed by Garrett Brown

Instrumentation: Bassoon and Electronics

Duration: 9:30

Premiere: April 23, 2019 - Garrett Brown - Stony Brook Composers Concert, Stony Brook, NY

Program Notes:

In Distant Wave, the bassoonist records themselves playing and filters the recordings with an accelerometer attached to the bassoon. They move the bassoon across two planes to bring out different partials of the recorded bassoon sounds, building harmonies from single pitches.
