Recorded during the same creative residency of Bonobobass, "Il Contrafono Vibra Basso" ("the doublephone vibrabass") does what the title suggests: true to the genetic path traced with the previous album, it stretches the possibilities of two very different instruments until they break and recompose in a single flow of sound, characterized by expanded techniques, preparation and masterful interplay between Federico Bagnasco on double bass and Davide Merlino on vibraphone.
