X-Traces - Luigi Ceccarelli live electronics - Daniele Roccato double bass
live performance at Area Sismica (Forlì) 7 January 2012
Electroacoustic performer Luigi Ceccarelli and double bassist Daniele Roccato present X-Traces, a structured improvisation for double bass and electronic sound processing in real time.
The double bass, played with the techniques of contemporary music, is amplified by two microphones which diffuse the sound and send it to a digital electroacoustic system for its elaboration.
In this performance, the double bass sounds are elaborated in real time as a counterpoint to the live sounds. Thus, the double bassist reacts to the same sounds he had produced a few seconds before they have been digitally transformed. It's a loop generating a close dialogue between the two musicians who work in symbiosis.
This is not a traditional concert where the musicians hold exclusive control over their own instruments, but a performance where each one develops the acoustic vibrations of the other. The double bass separates into several layers, alternating timbre stratifications to thick polyrhythmic sequences; expressive melodic counterpoints to abstract space resonances.
