Graham Dunning‘s Open Sound Group has just released after 30 x 12 (for C. Reider), a collaboration with sound artist C. Reider.
From the description:
After 30 x 12 (for C. Reider) by Daniel Barbiero is a gestural composition for double bass and optional electronics. Individual gestures were drawn from a closed vocabulary of actions to be taken in relation to the sound material, and then organized as discrete events. These events were then arranged sequentially into long-period phrases separated by non-actions. C. Reider contributed a layer of electronics based on a reduction of a live performance using the double bass sounds as a filter.

The latest installment of Don Campau‘s always-stimulating No Pigeonholes EXP series includes “DB Tone Roe V.1” from If, Bwana’s The Rationale for a Space Telescope.
Percorsi Musicali was kind enough to ask me to write a piece about my contribution to the If, Bwana release The Rationale for a Space Telescope.
