From the moment he held a double bass in his hands for the first time at age sixteen in Paris, the future of the instrument was destined to be changed. In a lightning bolt of insight, Renaud Garcia-Fons saw possibilities in this instrument to explore all the musics that interested him – classical, jazz, Persian, Indian, Mediterranean, South American, forms from the world over.  Driven by new ideas and the talent to translate them into compositions, he had to reinvent the way it could be played. The result is an utterly new sound – an amalgam of double bass, cello, violin, guitar, lute, oud, and more – that exceeds any conventional idea of playing the double bass.
