Here’s an awesome clip of 9-string bassist ChaotH (aka Frédérick Filiatrault) playing the song “Words” from his band UneXpecT’s album Fables of the Sleepless Empire.
ChaotH, who admits that his hair is the source of his bass playing power, takes full advantage of his extended range instrument with some beautiful chordal playing reminiscent of some Tony Levin’s Chapman Stick work in King Crimson. Of course he brings down to the bottom for some heaviness as well. Tapping, slapping, finger-style… he does it all.
Thanks to our friend Robert Florio for sending it in.
