Miles Perkin: solo double bass, voice, electronics

This solo material has been developed through a series of recording sessions. I recorded many improvisations, listened to them, identified appealing musical territories and recorded again using these territories as a starting point. This process was repeated several times until I felt that I had fully surrounded a specific idea, but had not hit it on the head directly. This allows for the space and flexability needed to breath new life into the pieces each time they are performed while maintaining each specific color and shape.
