Podcast #1: Contrabass

This podcast is the first in a series designed to help composition students and teachers feel more comfortable writing for individual instruments and ensembles.  The emphasis in these podcasts is on lesser-known and lesser-used instruments.  In this first podcast we focus on the contrabass, also known as string bass or double bass.  Listen to find out some of the wonderful things it can do and some of the ways you can use it in a composition.
