An annotated guide to electroacoustic solo double bass repertoire
Ballew, Cranford Braxton
MetadataShow full item record
The double bass has an extensive solo repertoire. Works for solo double bass and electronics make up a significant part of that repertoire. To date, several repertoire and compositional guides for the double bass have been produced, but none deal extensively with electronic music. The goal of this guide is to be an educational resource that will result in more performances of these works by double bassists and, as a result, expansion of the double bass repertoire by composers concurrent with increased appreciation for the double bass as a solo instrument. This guide examines existing double bass and electronic music resources. A proposal for the creation of an archive for the preservation of the electronic media portion of these compositions concludes the document.
