DNK DAYS presents: Dario Calderone – Extended Bass, a project that aims to further develop certain characteristics of the double bass with two compositions: one by Calderone, one by Michael Pisaro.
Extended Bass is a project that aims to further develop certain characteristics of the double bass. Added sympathetic strings amplify the natural resonance of the instrument, while a micro-amplification system resonates all those secret components of sounds belonging to the world of tiny noises and also magnifies the harmonic components of the double bass. Extended Bass presents two compositions: one is Calderone’s own, especially written for this set up, in which he explores the possibilities of this new instrument. The other composition is by Michael Pisaro. These two pieces are placed on opposite altars to show two radically different ways of conceiving virtuosity.
