about

Variations on a Lonely Theme was composed during the winter of 2010 and represents an interest in the use of live and prepared electronics in a performance setting. The piece evolved from a short melodic theme for electric bass, and takes the listener through a gradual destruction of that theme. Each section explores a few small elements of the theme and incorporates live delay, pitch-shifting and other processing techniques. Included in the mix are several prepared electronic cues, which amplify a certain emotional quality within each destructive section. The piece ends with a modified recapitulation of the main theme, signifying a musical jamais vu, caused by the musical events in between the two.
