The young bassist Florentin Ginot has worked closely with several figures of musical creation such as Georges Aperghis, Rebecca Saunders, and Sebastian Rivas. Not Here is a body to body with a massive and versatile instrument, but also an idea of space and of light, an installation in an architecture of venues via four platforms. Creations for doublebass, speech, and electronics are combined with transcriptions towards the bass, works by Helmut Lachenmann and György Kurtág.
