This document reflects on the development, performance, and reception of my music for solo contrabass. Issues of notation, composition, embodiment, and chaos are explored in respect to a musical practice rooted in improvisation. Technical and musical issues specific to the contrabass and this solo work are addressed, as are the relationships between two live performances and a prior recording.
