Benjamin Duboc | 1969 | France

double bass







After several years of training (notably with Jean-François Jenny-Clark), he was exposed to free jazz through individuals like Jobic Lemasson, Arnaud Sacase (Septentrion, Marge, 2004), and through performing with numerous american visiting artists. He then moved towards free improv and has built a solid reputation playing with Edward Perraud, Jean-Luc Guionnet (their group, The Fish, should release its debut album on Ayler records), Didier Lasserre... Duboc's main preoccupation is to expand the possibilities of improvisation through varying contexts, therefore adjoining to his own idiom other artforms.
