Dominic Lash is a freely improvising double bassist, although his activities also range much more widely. Based in Bristol, he leads his own quartet (with Javier Carmona, Ricardo Tejero and Alex Ward) as well as the ensemble Consorts. He has performed with musicians such as Tony Conrad, Joe Morris, Evan Parker and Steve Reid, while his current collaborative projects include Stray (with John Butcher, John Russell and Ståle Liavik Solberg) and The Convergence Quartet (with Taylor Ho Bynum, Harris Eisenstadt and Alexander Hawkins).

Born Cambridge, England, in January 1980; played bass guitar since 1994; studied with Hugh Boyd and Pascha Milner and at Basstech (London) with Rob Burns, Terry Gregory and others. Played double bass since 2001; basically self taught, with grateful thanks to Simon H. Fell. Received MA Composition from Oxford Brookes University in 2003, having studied with Paul Whitty, Ray Lee and others. PhD from Brunel University, supervised by Richard Barrett & John Croft.
