The wreck of former boundaries (contrabass solo)

Aaron Cassidy (Composer)

Research output: Non-textual formComposition

Abstract

The wreck of former boundaries, for contrabass solo, is part of a larger conglomerate of works—each sharing the same title—that includes a range of solo works, small chamber works, works for electronics, and an extended ensemble work for two trumpet soloists, clarinet, saxophone, trombone, electric lap steel guitar, double bass, and multichannel electronics, ranging in duration from six to 35 minutes.

The work emerges out of a recent fascination with curves, arcs, bubbles, and foams, and foregrounds an undercutting and liquidation of the geometric, architectural, latticed methodology that has guided most of my work to date, particularly with regard to rhythm and its notation, and to the relationship between formal design and local-level decision making. It is a work that sets movement, energy, force, and velocity against various states of friction, resistance, viscosity, and elasticity.
