The Basso Images project is an improvised audio/visual experience that is realized in real time, through collaboration between video artist and double bassist/composer. The video artist creates a visual montage from a variety of original video footage, including local images, and is processed and mixed in the moment, responding to the sounds produced by the double bassist/composer. The double bassist creates an audio environment through the real-time digital processing of the sounds produced on the double bass. This creates a unique, mesmerizing, symbiotic relationship that contributes to a truly immersive artwork.
