Quatuor Bozzini has been an original voice and strong advocate in new, experimental and classical music since 1999. Driving the hyper-creative Montréal scene and beyond, the quartet cultivates an ethos of risk-taking, experimentation, and collaboration, venturing boldly off the beaten track. With a rigorous eye for quality, they have nurtured a rich and diverse repertoire, regardless of trends. More

Sebastian Gramss

Sebastian Gramss (Cologne, Germany) is a German double bass virtuoso and composer of jazz and contemporary music, with over thirty releases to his name as well as a multitude of bands and ensembles. In 'Atopie', roles are reversed between speaker and bass: instead of the bass triggering a mounted, amplified speaker, a speaker-core is placed inside the cavity of the bass, turning the double bass itself into the amplifying resonator on the wooden stage of the Victoria Rooms.
