From the album
Clean and fresh voices, open punctuation and fluid melodies. Clever knot so catchy?
About the Album
Track: A childlike opening duet, three catchy melodies turning round and round creating an irresistible desire to move your body. Do you remember your first tricycle ride? Album: Drawing inspirations from natural and human made shapes, colors and textures, The Shape of Noon is the first album by Swiss drummer Michel Maurer, showcasing his work both as a drummer and as a composer. The seven compositions blend written material with diverse improvisational strategies to create a peaceful and meditative music, sometimes delicate, even fragile, contrasted with strong, groove driven, tensed and chaotic moments. Michel Maurer has performed with his quartet Meridian since 2018 and has developed a recognizable sound through a unique musical relationship with guitarist Alex Levine, saxophonist Peyton Pleninger and bassist Ben Rolston.
