Mich Gerber (born Michael Gerber in 1957) is a Swiss bassist and composer who lives in Bern, Switzerland. With his double-bass he uses a live sampling technique to create layers of music, weaving the whole into a rich rhythmic and melodic soundscape. This way, he extends the complete acoustic range of his instrument.

Through a world of overtones with his original approach and percussive rhythm, occasionally employing modern ‘noise’ effects, Gerber explores all the techniques available to the modern double-bassist from plucking, bowing and using the instrument as a percussive tool forming, in effect, a solo acoustic ‘bass orchestra’.

Even though his music has a contemporary feel, Gerber explores ancient tone systems to achieve his unique sound. In his contempory music Mich Gerber plays time and again with archaic tone systems and elements. Sacred, abstract and oriental touches within his original compositions enable listeners to enter into different worlds. On his recordings, which he produces with his long-time friend Gert Stäuble, the music is combined with acoustic and electronic drums and percussive and electronic elements and noise, coupled with the appearance of guest musicians.
