He leads us through a world of overtones with his original approach and percussive rhythm, occasionally employing modern ‘noise’ effects.
Mich 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’.
But even though his music has a contemporary feel, he 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.
