This "B" is for Brian is an open-form composition for bass and live electronics. Recent works of mine have displayed a tendency towards using simple structures and processes that produce copious activity and detail. The work consists of a number of layers of material, all similar in nature, but varied. One might think of these layers as a sheaf of transparencies, all with somewhat different renderings of a common image. How many of these transparencies are layered together can vary from performance to performance. The details and density will change, but the over all shape and affect is consistent.
