Sébastien Boisseau double bass, Yolk cofounder


Living in Nantes where he jointly runs the Yolk Records label, Sébastien Boisseau has become a reknown double bass player in Europe.
He develops a powerful and elegant playing, his references are anchored in jazz, somewhere between Jean-François Jenny-Clark, Marc Johnson and Scott Lafaro.
He composes for his projects Wood and Unit and participates in numerous collective projects in France and in Europe

Faithful to his early partners (Alban Darche, Denis Badault, Matthieu Donarier, Jean-Louis Pommier) he has collaborated and produced music with numerous figures of Jazz : Daniel Humair, Joachim Kühn, Louis Sclavis, Charlie Mariano, Marc Ducret, Martial Solal, Misha Mengelberg, John Hollenbeck, Pat Metheny, Michel Portal, Gábor Gadó, Eric Watson, Stéphan Oliva, Hans Lüdemann, Samuel Blaser, Piotr Wojstasik, John Tchicai, Mikko Innanen, Kenny Werner, Simon Goubert, Pierre Dørge…

His meeting with Jean-Yves Evrard has taken him towards other approaches of instant music like with his performances (the project « Il n'y a pas de fraises en hiver » = there are not strawberries in winter), singing (Daniel Hélin) and theatre where he plays alongside him in the play by flemsich author Arne Sierens « DePijnders »)
In 2011, he composes the score for the silent film by Teinosuke Kinugasa « A mad page » 1926 which he interprets at the « festival of art history » in Fontainebleau.

With Louis Sclavis and Jean-Paul Delore they have designed « Idioms and Lights » a recital based on French speaking authors (Michaux, Sony Labou Tansi, Dieudonné Niangona, Charles Beaudelaire…). Sébastien Boisseau also offers short duo programmes in « music lounges » where the host invites his friends and neighbours to discover the practice of improvisation at close range.
