BRICK for tuba and electronics
BRICK is a theme and variations based on the 1979 album “The Wall” from the psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd. The harmonic material and riffs are derived from the bassline heard in Another Brick in the Wall, of which the title BRICK refers to. The piece is built around that bassline, riffs and guitar effects heard on the album, and extended techniques like multi-phonics and other vocal effects aimed to emulate a squealing electric guitar. This piece is suitable for performances in recital halls, music festivals, garages…basically any venue that indulge a tubists’ dream to be a rockstar.
BRICK can be performed with or without electronics. The software used are Ableton Live and MAX/MSP. Electronic files and score included in .zip download.
