Dance Suite for double bass is a collection of dances that I intend to grow during the course of my life. Included in this edition are “Off Kilter,” a movement exploring mixed meter, and “Rock Step,” which draws on my love of swing dancing. In the spirit of György Ligeti’s Musica Ricercata, I challenged myself by using only seven pitches in the first, and eight pitches in the second dance.
