On Wombs and Vowels

2003; dur: 5′; Double bass solo (with voice); 
Score at Wise Music Classical

An extended double bass solo from the opera “No Title Performance and Sparkling Water. Dedicated to Håkon Thelin. Requires use of mallets and voice.

“Bassist Hakon Thelin’s technique which alternates subtle bowing with percussive mallet strikes puts me in mind of Barry Guy’s work with the Evan Parker Trio, whereas his vocalizations make me think of Vladimir Volkov.”
