Filippo Mereu –  Double Bass Mystery – Italy

This work is developed essentially on the analysis of double bass timbre. I started from various recordings of timbre to capture the complex nuances that characterize the different modes of execution by the double bassist. After having selected the most interesting parts on the timbre level, I manipulated the sound material projecting it in an acousmatic dimension, therefore unrecognizable and distant from the human gesture.


Italian composer of electroacoustic, acousmatic music and musique concrète, sound designer, and multimedia artist. He composed music for contemporary dance events, theater, short films, video clips, contemporary art exhibitions, and sound installations in public and private venues. His electroacoustic compositions and his video works have been selected and performed at various international festivals.
