"Basse seule is a series of etudes and pieces for double bass composed by Bertrand Denzler for Felicie Bazelaire. The music is built on simple systems, which allow an exploration of some characteristics of the instrument, as well as the situation of the instrumentalist playing alone. Within the systems, the musician has to find a balance in order to reveal the sound's complexity."-Confront

Artist Biographies:

"Felicie Bazelaire is a cello and double bass player based in Paris. She shares her time in different ways : between concerts and performances, studying pedagogy through a Masters degree at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris, and teaching at the Orsay and Auxerre's conservatory. She is interested in classical music (chamber music) and contemporary music with her solo projects (improvisation, compositions, performances/actions...), the Hodos ensemble and the ONCEIM (a french improvised large orchestra led by Frederic Blondy). She is curious about the link between musicians, composers, improvisers and the actual music."
