The Glow In The Dark music is available into a bilingual (french/english) book titled Incandescent Songs for the Polyphonic Bass. It offers a series of compositions and arrangements that will allows you to develop polyphonic playing on the double bass.
Bass players can also learn about Mathieu Désy’s evolving technique in his instructional booklet titled Bass vs. Gravity. The work exposes a simple approach to instrumental technique that focuses on the importance of gravity. It explains and vulgarizes the basics of an approach to greater freedom, while encouraging conscious reflection on double bass technique.
Glow In The Dark highlights the compositions and solo arrangements of Mathieu Désy for polyphonic double bass. Available in audio and video these pieces entertain a sober but audacious consonance while Désy pushes back the limitations of the traditional double bass offering polyphonic music dedicated to his instrument.
Following his debut trio-inspired jazz album titled “Contrebasse & Marées”, “Glow In The Dark” is closer to modern classical music and neo-classicism; the idea being to compose short instrumental songs that present the double bass in harmony and contrast.
