take a sound
Take a Sound. Do Something to It. Do Something Else to It (pyr096) is the second release from double bassist Daniel Barbiero and electronic sound artist Steve Hilmy. An outgrowth of their work with the Nancy Havlik Dance Performance Group, their collaboration explores the creative applications of new technologies to conventional and extended performance techniques for the double bass.

  1. Take a Sound. Do Something to It. Do Something Else to It.
  2. A Multiplication of Voices (for Steve Hilmy)
  3. Coda: Watching the Watchers

“Take a Sound. Do Something to It. Do Something Else to It.” and “Coda: Watching the Watchers” are two live improvisations for amplified double bass and real-time electronic processing recorded at An die Musik in Baltimore on 14 June 2012 and at Dance Exchange in Takoma Park, Maryland on 21 January 2012. “A Multiplication of Voices (for Steve Hilmy)” is an improvisation for solo double bass processed post-performance with the Granulab synthesizer program in April 2013.
