Garcia-Fons

Vita

Renaud Garcia-Fons (born near Paris, 1962 ) is a double-bass player and composer, renowned for his customised 5-string bass. Garcia-Fons' father is the painter Pierre Garcia-Fons, and his family is of Catalonian origin. In the early 1980s Garcia-Fons enrolled at the Paris Conservatory; he has studied with François Rabbath who coached him in his unique technique of arco playing. Acclaimed for his melodic sense and his viola-like col arco sound, he is influenced by jazz and classical music, flamenco, new musette, and "imaginary folklore" traditions. He started playing jazz in trumpet -player Roger Guérin's band. From 1987 to 1993 he was part of a French all-double bass ensemble L'Orchestre de Contrebasses before playing in the Orchestre National de Jazz directed by Claude Barthélémy. He collaborated with jazz musicians like Jean-Louis Matinier, Michael Riessler, Nguyên Lê, and Michel Godard. He contributed to recordings of Gerardo Núñez and to Middle Eastern players such as Kudsi Erguner, Dhafer Youssef, and Cheb Mami. He is a major player on the world stage performing at music fetivals internationally, constantly guided by his conviction that it is essntial to break down the "intolerable barriers" between different kinds of music.
