About Ed de Vos
I have been working as a musician and a composer since 1974. My main instrument is the double-bass, most of the time I play a 5-string Czech double-bass (aged about 35 years).
Since 1978 I have been working at the Rotterdamse Dans Academie where I musically accompany modern dance and dance improvisation classes playing double-bass, piano, percussion and synthesizer.
Among the groups I composed for and played double bass with were Trio Manus, Ed de Vos Trio and the Prisma Orkest.
I have also been working intensively with dancers and choreographers outside the academy too. As a composer for the last couple of years, I mainly work for dance performances (see "Music downloads") and create and perform at solo bass concerts.
soloconcerts I am
digital effect-processors and cd's with sound samples, loops and voices. Thus
"I create a one-man orchestra with a wide
diversity of sounds and musical possibilities" Both composition and
improvisation are important factors in my concerts.Through the years, I developed "an uniquely individual musical language, conjuring up strong cinematographic images".
