For his first solo album, Jens Fossum wanted to make everything sound exactly the way he wanted. So what do you get with 100% Fossum? 100% diversity, mainly. Already on previous group albums, Fossum displayed his talents on a wide range of instruments, including the Chinese er-hu and pipa next to cello, mandolin and guitar. Although all of them are again making an appearance here, they are integrated into a larger, overarching concept: Despite its title, which might suggest something more puristic, Bass Detector explores the synergies between different string instruments in the context of contrasting musical cultures – from West to East, from Europe to Latin America and from Africa to India.
