New sounds for the double bass ensemble founded in 2010 and directed by the soloist and composer Daniele Roccato.

The particular formation of the ensemble immediately imposed itself as an authentic novelty in the contemporary scene, attracting the attention of authors who have marked the history of music, such as Hans Werner Henze, Sofia Gubaidulina, Terry Riley, Gavin Bryars, Stefano Scodanibbio, and receiving invitations from many of the most prestigious European festivals.

Just the encounter between Roccato and Scodanibbio, who died prematurely in 2012 and among the most innovative and influential bass players of our time, gave birth to the ensemble, which in its program for Bologna Modern combines innovation and playful sense, precisely, among the suggestions "Spatial" by Nicola Sani and the dancing sun of the Mirage by Sofia Gubaidulina, and with an absolute first performance by Tonino Battista.
