The Edge of All I Know: A Close Collaboration between Double Bass and Composer Bobby Ge


‘The Edge of All I Know’ borrows its title from a book by Christian Wiman, a poet who writes extensively on the frequently contradictory yet often beauteous nature of faith. Wiman’s work is filled with both gentle meditation and impassioned doubt, and as such, this piece employs grating, ‘dirty’ overtones and multiphonics as well as long-lined melodies in its consideration of spirituality. The music features two soliloquizing bass clarinets in the style of early organum, their lines weaving in and around one another as they alternate between supporting drones and plainchant.
