Daniel Barbiero & Cristiano Bocci
“Strange things there may be, out there, but it sure beats boredom” Trebuchet
νόστος (Nostos) – Greek for “returning home” and the root of the word “nostalgia”-is a collection of eight new electroacoustic works for double bass and electronics by double bassist Daniel Barbiero (Silver Spring, MD USA) and sound artist/electric bassist Cristiano Bocci (Follonica, Italy). The pieces are the result of an international collaboration-sonic action at a distance-over the web.
Each piece is grounded in a solo double bass performance wich was then modified, dismantled and reassembled into constructions that explore timbral nuances as well emerging harmonies, counterpoint and rhythms. “L’ultimo treno per Follonica” is a virtual duet for Barbiero’s double bass and Bocci’s six-strings bass.
