Renaud GARCIA-FONS : Five-strings Double Bass
In this SOLO, Renaud Garcia-Fons sings a beautiful love song for his instrument by drawing inspiration from the music that comprises his world of ten recordings, coming from other times (Marcevol, Hacia Compostella) and other places around the vast Mediterranean (Jeyhounabad, Kalimbass).
Alone with his instrument (and some loops made only with bass sounds), he pushes the boundaries of an already immense technique, and unfolds a song of breathtaking beauty.
Renaud Garcia-Fons, avoiding a fall into the trap of virtuosity, our man has created a tour de force in building a world of musical strokes both bold and fine, and lyrically warm.
