Recent advancements in contemporary double bass techniques: harmonics and multiphonics.

This lecture focus on showing the development of harmonic techniques created by Stefano Scodanibbio. Since 1980 Scodanibbio has been a central force within the European art music scene, through his own compositions, collaboration with many leading composers, and through the development of novel playing techniques.

Further I will demonstrate how I have applied these techniques in some of my own works for solo double bass.

The use of multiphonics on the double bass is a new and generally unknown phenomenon. I will talk briefly about this subject and demonstrate some musical examples.

The lecture is based upon the work I do as a Fellow in the Arts at the Norwegian Academy of Music. For more information, please visit

Streamed live and recorded at the ISB 2009 Convention at State College, PA.
