Recently, the online newspaper Huffington Post organised a competition to find the most beautiful words to describe the bass guitar.

The publisher’, Cherno Jobatey, wished for an ‘ode to the deep tones’. It resulted in over eighty poems, writings and videos. Jazz bassist Berhard Hollinger, who graduated from the bachelor’s degree programme at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in 2013 and is now a student in the master’s degree programme, was selected as winner; he won a Marcus Miller Sire bass and a meeting with his idol, Marcus Miller.
