Eberhard Weber

He began recording in the early 1960s, and released his first record, Colours of Chloë (ECM 1042), under his own name in 1973. In addition to his career as a musician, he also worked for many years as a television and theater director. He has designed an electric-acoustic bass featuring an extra C-string.

His music, often in a melancholic tone, follows simple ground patterns (frequently ostinatos), yet is highly organized in its colouring and attention to dramatic detail.

Weber was a notable early proponent of the solid-body electric double bass, which he has played regularly since the beginning of the 1970s.
