Double Bass Quartet – 8 minutes
There has been so much talk about the internet and social media being both the great connector and the great divider of people. The feeling is that these conduits of information and connectors of people bring with them a kind of odd alienation and disconnect, that we are simultaneous with people and without people. I had been thinking about these things and the image that stuck with me was the physical reality of how we spend so much of our internet time: alone, by ourselves, tucked away in our apartments and homes. My music comes from that place, the quiet times when we commune with our screens and our networks.
Alone Together was commissioned by the Heavy Hands Bass Quartet.
