The album, Egret/Flatlander, is now available through Bandcamp:
Egret/Flatlander is a set of solo bass pieces by Ben Willis. Composed through development and exploration of improvisational practice, the movements have taken shape as open cellular structures, that act as themes and zones for extemporaneous development.
The pieces make use of a range of extended double bass techniques, drawing inspiration from contemporary classical music and free improvisation. The musical language draws from many influences, including rock structures, folk harmonies and melodies, and doom metal.
Ben recorded these pieces as a solo album, released July 2nd, 2015.
He is presenting many solo performances throughout 2015, including a presentation at the 2015 International Society of Bassists Conference in Fort Collins, CO
