Strings and drums is the working title of a project I had in mind while writing the music for the trio. I felt that I was always picturing strings in my head while writing certain sounds. So my interest in a string quartet plus myself on bowed electric bass started to grow. to bring a counter weight into this instrumentation, I opted to have two drummers that I could write for.
During my last visit in New York we had sort of a first meeting/session with a possible formation of this group. The members were: Christopher Hoffman(cello), Joanna Mattrey(viola), Sarah Bernstein(violin), Flin Van Hemmen(drums), Carlo Costa(drums), myself on electric bass.
We played a try-out piece that I wrote for the occasion. You can check out the recording below !
