Double-bass and electric bass player Žiga Golob is a member of numerous Slovenian and international stylistically diverse music groups (free improvisation, chanson, post rock, jazz, etc.) The mainstay in his playing and the common point of most groups he is a part of is improvisation. In some instances this is only a small element, while in others it may be the main characteristic.
