“After listening to us, audiences always say they missed the bass or a chord instrument,” says Steve Wilson. It’s a feeling shared by Lewis Nash: ‘We both have extensive experience playing in groups of varying instrumentation, from small groups to large bands and orchestras,’ he explains. “Our awareness of the function of the tuning instruments allows us to use that experience and knowledge to create the ‘illusion’ of the presence of those instruments, especially through Steve’s in-depth knowledge of melody and harmony and through the use of timbre, texture and phrasing – I can create the feel of a bass guitar by manipulating the tones of my bass drum, for example.”
