Dyad

(2020)
Composer, Double Bass, Programmer.

Dyad is my second solo album, and was released on BoogiePost Recordings in March 2020. The album consists of a single, longform dialogue between myself, the bass, and a homebrew feedback setup. It’s a thorough examination of the physical and aural boundaries of the bass, shaped by the turbulences from the feedback network.

Dyad was recorded on a damp but clear winter’s day in the archipelago outside of Stockholm. A piezo microphone was plugged into a computer running a custom software patch, returning the signal to be played back into a transducer mounted on the top of the double bass. The recording has since been cut in both ends and extended vertically, with varispeed echoes from additional microphones, chords and field-recorded bridges.
