about

Originally produced in 2012, this project documents an intriguing electroacoustic collaboration between violinist/composer Dufallo (FLUX, ETHEL, Ne(x)tworks, VisionIntoArt) and bassist/composer/producer Derivaz (John Cale, Tom Verlaine, Joe Zawinul).

Cornelius Dufallo:
"Patrick Derivaz and I started recording Bass Violin in January of 2011. Patrick's concept was to experiment with pairing two instruments of extremely different registers using digital effects and loops. Our process was highly spontaneous: using composed material that we each brought to the sessions as a point of departure, we improvised freely and record all of our improvisations. After this we assembled each composition from the recorded material. Each of the pieces is a truly collaborative combination of composition, improvisation, and post-production.

Our creative meeting ground turned out to be a meditative, quasi-hypnotic aesthetic in which variation is slowed to a nearly imperceptible rate. Within this sound world, the combination of registral extremes and a rich palette of digital tone colors created music that we hope is deeply engaging on both an emotional and psychological level."

"An enjoyable early-morning listen, quietly stimulating. "
- François Couture

"It is quite safe to call this ambient music, albeit of a very strange kind. Very accessible and enjoyable on the one hand, but it is also difficult to identify what really is happening here. By result this music is plunged in some mysterious cloud. Fascinating! "
- Vital Weekly
