Sebastien Beliah is a Paris-based double bass player, a member of Umlaut Big Band, The Coquettes, Un poco loco, &c., here in a solo album of bass noir, dark and resonant tones evoked through strong bowing, finding harmonics between the strings and from the instrument itself, creating beautiful passages in a mirage of engulfing deep timbre.

sample the album:
"Sounds. Only sounds inhabit the space. Sometimes they meet each other, sometimes they are travelling alone through this space, Describing slowly the geography of the instrument that is producing them.
Since he started playing the double bass, Sebastien Beliah has always tried to invent his own music with his instrument. That's why, beside his work in different jazz or improvised music ensembles, he always kept a place, one by one with his instrument, where he can develop his personal ideas.
From there was born Nocturnes. Pieces with simple appearance and refined profiles, in order to invite the listener to hear the infinite nook of the sound of the double bass."-Umlaut
