Considering that Stravinsky did dubstep back in 1913...

    No. If you use a bass clarinet, you have to sit, and thus miss out on the cardio.

    Are you familiar with Schoernberg's Five Little Pieces For Orchestra? Orchestras are truly amazing instruments but awfully expensive.
  4. Bass clarinets can be played with a neck strap. Go for it!

    Stravisnky didn't have enough wobbly bass clarinet for my tastes, but man could he drop the bassoon.

    that bit is just actually a bass clarinet going D-F-F-F followed by three ascending/descending arpeggio-like figures and the D-F-F-F thing again.
    the dubstep thing is generally a static bass note on a synth with an oscillator speeding up and down. sorta different.
    generally when you hear something kinda cool someone has already "done" it before.
    and speaking of orchestral music: if y'all wanna hear some kinda unique orchestral stuff by a living composer check out Thomas Ades' "Living Toys".
