It is deliberate that these five pieces for double bass and piano have no indication of nuance, phrasing, or even tempo.
The general title "Do it yourself" wants to make it clear that it is up to the performers to find the way to make this music sound.
There are only notes and rhythm. We can play bound, staccato, pizzicato, arco, swing, binary, fast, slowly, rubato, tempo, everything is possible and above all allowed. In places we can improvise by defining revisions or passages "ad libitum".
When the chords are encrypted, the pianist can play his voicing.
You have to look for, get involved and, in a way, finish the composition yourself, make it your own.
It will be interesting to compare the versions between different performers.
