###just one more thing
**Composer: Mira Calix 2013
Instrumentation: Double Bass & Electronics
Performer: Robert Black - Double Bass
Duration: 10.35 **
After working with Robert Black on various projects for the New York based ensemble, Bang On A Can, of whom he is a founding member. Robert and i wanted to continue collaborating and he asked me to write a piece for him to perform live on his US tour. His only request was that the work could be performed with a playback what is traditionally called a 'tape' part in classical music terms, although now days, that more likely to mean computer accompaniment. Just one more thing is for electronics, live double bass and additional prerecorded multi-track bass lines and differs slightly to the live version which has much further double pass parts which are looped. I like that the live version remains more idiosyncratic but have enjoyed locking down a mix in 2016.
just one more thing has had a further development as far as live iterations go, where i adapted the score for double bass and violin, a duet, This version has been regularly performed by Darragh Morgan of the Fidelio Trio, making its debut in 2014 for a performance in my home town of Durban, South Africa.
