Kolophonium is a piece featuring my brand new sliding bass. It is the first string module I have built hence its name “C.1” which stands for chordophone number 1. It is also the first time that I added amplification to an instrument and I made sure that the sound is emitted from the module itself according to my ⇾Tonlicht manifesto.

I wonder why my music is always so sad – I never plan it to be this way. Maybe it’s the new war that started in Ukraine today, maybe it’s the climate crisis, maybe it’s the injustice that happens always and everywhere on the planet. Or maybe it’s just me.
