I have been thinking a lot about European Art Music in the past months, and I have decided to adapt the modern electric bass to some baroque repertoire. I am really curious as to how the instrument can fit into the traditional repertoire of these types of composers and hope to keep experimenting with different compositions. Someone should write a write a piece for solo electric bass tuned in fifths!
Here is me accompanying Karl Richter directing the first movement of J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.1.
Here’s a duo arrangement of two electric basses playing Handel’s Allemande in A minor.
And here is half of the 2nd movement in Bach’s Cello Suite no.2 in D minor that I am in the process of preparing for a full set of solo electric bass pieces. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=140186549671856
