Mark Dresser – Solo Concert, a House Concert at Harry Bernstein’s
“I have been playing solo bass concerts since 1983. Every year I look for something new to explore; new sounds, adaptive electronics to amplify otherwise unheard frequencies, or new compositions. Since 2002 I’ve been collaborating with my dear friend, luthier Kent McLagan who built me custom made pick-ups into the neck of my instrument and recently a new instrument that I’ll be playing for this concert. For the last year and a half we’ve been working on what is currently a prototype for a new adaption; a set of tuned metal tines, that are attached to the bridge of the bass. You’ll soon hear what has been the object of my latest obsession.
The idea of “Sonic Cuisine” still seems apt for the solo concert, but the newest works, to be composed in December, 2016, post election, will have more “prescriptive intent.”
