Pat Cleaver, Midi Bass

“I am very grateful to the Stichting Eigen Muziekinstrument for the wonderful work they do to help young musicians, and specifically their recent support in my purchase of a very special bass. This instrument is not only a beautiful sounding bass guitar in its own right, it will also translate every note that I play into MIDI data (the standard musical computer language), unlocking all kinds of exciting possibilities! I will be able to communicate directly with computer programs, and trigger videos, samples, synthesizers, stage lights and many other things during my shows directly through the notes that I play. I expect this will be best featured in my main project “Tin Men and the Telephone”, where the use of interactive electronics and visuals are the main focus of our performances. I am very excited at the new possibilities that this instrument will unlock for my career and artistic output in general. I think that exploring and mastering a melding of traditional instrumental virtuosity and cutting edge technology could revolutionize my performance style and allow me to dive headfirst into what I believe could be the future of live music.”
