Notes de programme :
basement apartments is a set of three miniatures for double bass and piano intended for the intermediate level double bassist. When I was originally conceptualizing the piece, I was attracted to the idea of “basement apartments” as a central theme, picturing someone who is creating their own independence from the ground up, perhaps for the first time. In “researching” the piece, I found it quite fun to look through craigslist ads for basement apartments, looking at how landlords would paint the apartments in the best possible light, highlighting privacy, light, spaciousness, cleanliness, and nearby amenities. Three of these features became movement titles: I. Private entrance, II. Bright, spacious, and clean, and III. Suitable only for one person.In writing for the double bass, I wanted to write something that would be challenging but also fun to play, mixing lyrical lines with spiccato rhythms in the first movement, thumb position melodies with strummed open strings in the second, and incorporating tremolo into something of a double-stop “aria” in the third. I also wanted to create interesting roles for the piano, starting with a supportive role in the first, a conversational dialogue in the second, and completely absent in the third.basement apartments was commissioned by the Canadian Music Centre’s New Music for Young Musicians Project through the Norman Burgess Fund. Project funding for New Music for Young Musicians was generously provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. My heartfelt thanks to Alex Kotyk, a fantastic double bassist and educator, for his invaluable help in the development of the piece.
