fretless bass and electronic composition
Inspired by Indian music and its most ancient instrument, the Rudra Veena,
Floy Krouchi has developed an augmented bass which uses electronics and
real-time transformation. Within stripped down bass frequencies and the
slowness of oscillations a relationship to silence is mapped out, one that
takes us to the very edge of sound, “inside time”.
Rhythm, mass, fabric - from noise based pulsation to amplified silence each solo is a unique piece, recorded at a precise moment in time, numbered
and dated like a painting or an artefact.
