Hypothermia for bass drum (2020)

Gran cassa and electronics

The piece utilizes a feedback system, where a speaker is placed close to the resonating skin of the drum and two microphones are placed close to the batter skin of the drum. In this piece I also use software I wrote to mimic the behaviour of the Japanese mouth-organ shō, called MHSho.

Premiered at Lilla Salen, Kungl. Musikhögskolan 14/4—2021.
