Gerard Ammerlaan started his career as a bass-player in different experimental pop-bands during the 1960/70's and turned to improvised music (including double bass) in the 80's. From 1983 onwards Ammerlaan has not only performed alone, but has also led his own ensembles and composed improvised music for all kinds of different line-ups, from duo's to orchestra's. Since the nineties he has been commissioned to compose for various foundations, including other ensembles and special projects such as operas and film music.
