kontra! sidetracks

composed and programmed by Martin von Frantzius, 2016
Ronald Vitzhum, double bass

Recording of premiere with elements of rehearsal (sound only) – MeƟmer Momentum, Hamburg Hafen City, 22.01.2016

kontra! sidetracks for double bass and computer is part of the composers’ sidetracks series (“marimba sidetracks”, “violin sidetracks”).
The live-electronic elements act like a second character in this piece, sometimes supporting the performer, sometimes disturbing him.

Composed for a concert-evening with “drums and bass”, it plays with elements of Drum’n’Bass.
All sounds are pure doublebass (with live-electronic effects).
