You Were the Window
The Room Series Part 4
for contrabass and room (pre-recorded electronics)
c. 6' 15"
The other instrument in this duet is the Room, an electronics track comprised of sounds made from objects in my bedroom. Such sounds include cups, rocks, rubber bands, metal bottles, a music box, and jewlery, among others.
As the final part of the Room Series, this piece explores creativity in solitude; it focuses on listening to one's surroundings, and through that ultimately finding freedom.
The Room Series is partially inspired by this poem by Ocean Vuong.
