METAFAGOTE

by REBEKAH HELLER

METAFAGOTE is an album that explores and inverts the raw sound of the solo bassoon, using electronics, spatialization and powerful melodic writing. In the title track, Felipe Lara explores how layering bassoon upon bassoon - 7 bassoons total - can create a new instrument entirely, a Metafagote. (Fagote being the word for bassoon in Felipe's native Portuguese)

All four works, major and exciting additions to the solo bassoon repertoire, were written for and with Rebekah through a deep and meaningful collaborative process.
