Gareth Davis plays bass and contrabass clarinet. With an eclectic and generally unclassified taste in music his recordings, projects and performances span contemporary classical, free improvisation and orchestral music through to rock, noise and electronica. Collaborations have included the premiering of new written pieces by composers such as Peter Ablinger, Jonathan Harvey, Toshio Hosokawa, or Bernhard Lang, performances with groups and performers ranging from the JACK Quartet and Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart through to improvisers Elliott Sharp and Frances-Marie Uitti, electronic artists Merzbow and Robin Rimbaud and multimedia work with artists including Christian Marclay and Peter Greenaway. His very first performance in Ostrava was during Ostrava Days 2019 where he performed e.g. a virtuoso solo part in Bernhard Lang's DW 28 Loops for Davis.
