Hotshot prodigy brings us up to date on his elaborate approach to music making and ambitious new CD release
Exclusive video interview with FBPO’s Jon Liebman
February 10, 2016
Chance Wilder Onody is a master of electric and acoustic bass, as well as several other instruments. Equally adept at funk, R&B and slapping as he is playing classical and using the bow, Onody has toured with the Seoul Philharmonic and performed with the Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra. He has also demonstrated his arranging capabilities by adapting classical scores and piano pieces for electric bass.
“I believe the bass needs to have this bigger voice,” said Chance in his first FBPO feature. Declaring that bass “is not a background instrument” and that it “has every right to be up front,” Onody puts his money where his mouth is by way of unique orchestrations and overdubbing parts in multiple ranges.
FBPO’s Jon Liebman caught up with Chance at the 2016 winter NAMM show to gather more insight into the young bassist’s approach to music, as well as his upcoming release, Crimson Wings.
