The Basso Images project is an improvised audio/visual experience that is completely created in real time, through collaboration between video artist Zlatko Ćosić and double bassist/composer Brad Decker. The video artist creates a visual work that uses footage from the immediate region, and is processed and mixed in real time in response to the sounds produced by the double bassist/composer. The double bassist creates and audio environment through the real-time digital processing of the sounds and techniques that are produced on the double bass. This creates a unique, mesmerizing, symbiotic relationship that contributes to a truly immersive artwork. For this special New York performance, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eleanor Dubinsky will join Basso Images on vocal and cello.
Brad Decker’s music focuses on the concept of interaction, and each work does so in a unique way (i.e. performer/composer interactivity; combining eras of technology; exploring disparate gestures and timbres; juxtaposing spaces and architectural ratios; etc.). His music has been performed in Australia, Italy, France, Brazil, and Canada, as well as at numerous festivals in the United States. As a teacher, he stresses positive, creative exploration, and refined clarity of expression. His classes usually center on the discovery of new ideas through critical thinking and focused observation.
Dr. Decker received his DMA in music composition from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received his MM in music theory and composition at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Currently he teaches music composition, electronic music, and theory at Eastern Illinois University.
