Double bassist Dean Ferrell is a performer that you’ve got to see to believe. Putting a label on what Dean does in simply impossible–the best I can do is to call his performances historically informed alternate tuning performance art.
Dean did an hour-long performance at the 2007 ISB Convention featuring music from Captain Tobias Hume. This year’s performance is titled “Ode to Per Questa.” Enough said–check it out (approx. 45 minutes):
I have another half-dozen or so videos of Dean that I recorded on another occasion during this past convention, and I’ll be putting them out over the next few weeks as well.
