Abstract

The aim of my research is to reflect on the complex relationship between double bass performers and their instrument, and to exploit in my creative process several musical and extra-musical issues. The outcome of this research is the composition of a chamber opera, The Cry of the Double Bass, featuring as main protagonists the double bass and its performer, and exploring through text and musical elements some aspects of my personal experience as both a double bassist and composer.
