Japan, Russia, Australia, and the United States. He has toured throughout the United States

"Solo contrabass compositions. By turns languid,
dreamy, cranky and schizoid, Guberman's
compositions/improvisations delve into interesting,
probing abstract explorations. Who needs synths,
noise machines, and fancy audio tracks when you've
got a contrabass and the musical technique and
imagination to exploit it?"
-- Jim Esch, Orange Street Press."
