Costa, Carlos: Door of No Return (Aural Terrains)

Label: Aural Terrains    
Released in: Greece/UK    

"Costa is originally from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands. He is a double-bass player who focuses his work on improvised music. He participates in various works from his solo project, "Door of No Return", which was immersed into the production of his first album; a duet with guitarist Manolo Rodríguez, "Costa-Rodriguez" in which he presents his new recording "1+1=1". Costa is preparing a concert series to present this new album. He has also participated in various bands where the interaction between improvisation and composition predominates, highlighting his most recent project, "Chaira".

Although Costa has participated in numerous recordings with musicians from very diverse styles, his most important recording projects are: "Espacios", with his band Jet-Set, where he acts as composer, producer, and bass player; "Energy", a trio formed by Carlos Costa, José Miguel Méndez (drums) and Manolo Rodríguez (guitar); "Both Sides of the Coin", a project led alongside the guitarist, Manolo Rodríguez; "1+1=1", by the duo Costa-Rodríguez.

In recent years, after studying at SIM (School for Improvovisational Music), Costa has performed concerts with Manolo Rodriguez, Tim Berne, Tomas Fujiwara, Ingar Zach, Wade Matthews, Javier Pedreira, Kike Perdomo, Abdul Moimeme, and many others.

At an educational level, Costa teaches at the Guillermo González School of Music and participated in the Castillian translation of double-bass player Mark Dresser's method.

Costa has always been interested in training with other double-bass players like Ladislav Stukowski, Alain Bourgignon, Mark Dresser, Mark Helias and Ben Street, as well as other musicians like Ralph Alessi, Tomas Fujiwara, Miles Okazaki, Steve Coleman, Gerald Cleaver, Marc Ducret, Andy Milne, Sergio Brandao, Matthew Garrison, Jeff Andrews, and many others."-Aural Terrains
