about

Spoombung (New Music for Electric Bass) features compositions and improvisations specifically for the bass guitar and Hopper’s own 'Spoombung' form for prepared bass guitar which involves hammering and plucking the bass into repetive patterns. The result can often resemble african percussion and gamelan orchestration in its harmonic diversity and richness. The rhythmic forms explored in this recording place emphasis on texture and soundscaping augmented by Musical Saw.

Spoombung’s origins do not lie in the Jazz-Rock / Fusion world commonly associated with the bass guitar. Rather it is informed by the experimental & free-improvisational abstract music forms practised on London’s alternative scene and the digital, electronic ‘malfuntional’ music from Germany & Austria.
