The sonic materials in the seven movements of Suite for Virtual Double Bass are based on the sound samples of a double bass. By using different techniques from recording to sound wave editing, a vast variety of new timbres were achieved, which gave the composer a large palette of sonic colors to ’choreograph’. These sonic materials can be represented as visual lines or body movements which can be perceived as motions in space."
