Name: 
Abraham Francisco Ramos Chodo Main Subject: Double bass Research supervisor(s): Stefan Petrovic Title of Research: Tools and arrangement of Latino American music for double bass solo and piano. Research Questions: Is it possible for double bass to assume the solo role in Latino American traditional music? How to make and arrangement for double bass and piano, keeping the traditional characteristics? Summary of Results: The characteristics of the double bass, all his life used to be an accompaniment instrument, in charge of the harmony and rhythm support, nevertheless many composers wrote solo pieces, concertos, etc. for this instrument. The fact that there are not many written pieces for double bass solo in Latino American traditional music and that I was born in a place where the migration movements made miscegenation of people, culture with Africa, Europe and Latino America, aroused my curiosity and my will is to build a project where I can bring this music to the double bass solo repertoire. Presented this reasons my master research is focus on how can the process of arranging this music for double bass solo and piano be done. At first I needed to choose the repertoire, define the stylistic aspects of the piece and determine how I am going to represent the defining aspects of the traditional music in an arrangement for double bass solo and piano. As a result of the outcome material I decided to concentrate in a small book all the necessary tools for arranging a traditional piece; this small book includes: a brief biography of the composer/s, description and definition of the piece and style; score examples of how it should be played; harmonic and melodic structure of the piece; translation of lyrics; and an example of my own arrangement for double bass and piano. To demonstrate that the double bass can assume the solo role in Latino American traditional music, is the main goal of this research paper. Biography: Abraham Francisco Ramos Chodo was born in 1992 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain). At the age of 10 he stated studying Timple (traditional instrument of Canary Islands) at the SOLDOMILARE music school. In 2006 he began his music studies at the Conservatory of Canarias until 2012.
