About the album

A 3-disc set offering a panel of bassist Benjamin Duboc’s current work. The first disc focuses on Primare Cantus, a peculiar piece of music, performed only on the tailpiece of the double bass, and mixing the very low register of the instrument with sharper frequencies obtained with bow friction and mouth/breath sounds. The music here moves slowly, very slowly, but is never static, and continuously evolves through micro variations. Disc 2 and 3 then showcase Duboc’s bass in duo and trio settings with regular collaborators Didier Lasserre (percussion), Sylvain Guérineau (tenor sax), Jean-Luc Petit (tenor & baritone sax), Pascal Battus (guitar pickup), Sophie Agnel (piano) and Christian Pruvost (trumpet). Dive in and explore Benjamin Duboc's introspective sonic territories with us.
