FKBass Solo I, Soloist piece for augmented bass with integrated technology
During her stay at Camargo, Floy Krouchi worked on writing a first concert piece for the FKBass, her new enhanced bass with integrated technology, designed specifically for her practice. This research was inspired by the composer's research stays in India with Pandit Hindraj Divekar, Rudra Veena's master, and her practice of electroacoustic composition.
Floy Krouchi was in residence at the Camargo Foundation in 2019, as part of the Core Program.
