about

Das Quartett des Wahlzürcher Bassisten und Sängers Silvan Jeger verbindet Wurzeln und Äste von Song und Weltmusik mit Jazz und Freier Improvisation. Eine Band wie ein Baum, der mal knorrig vor sich hin wuchert und mal verblüffende Blüten und Früchte trägt. Die einzelnen Kompositionen stehen dabei als eigenständige Objekte und Skulpturen im weissen Ausstellungsraum und werden doch vom Bandsound der feinsinnigen Bonsai-Botaniker und gleichzeitig mutigen Mammutbaumfäller zusammengehalten.
Die Debüt-LP "Double Sun" setzt sich im Artwork mit der Materialität und speziell der Zweiseitigkeit des Mediums auseinander. Der Zürcher Künstler Jonas Etter bearbeitet die gedruckte Typografie, bei der keine klare Vorder- oder Rückseite erkennbar ist, mit einer Schleifmaschine und so entsteht eine Serie aus 300 Einzelstücken.

The quartet of the Zurich based bass player and singer Silvan Jeger connects roots and branches of song type and world music with jazz and free improvisation. Resembling a gnarled tree that sprawls in all directions, strangely flourishing, bearing unusual fruit. The compositions are positioned like sculptures and objects in a white cube – however, they are held together by the sound of the group’s members who act as subtle bonsai-botanics and yet brave woodchoppers.
The debut "Double Sun" outlines in its artwork the materiality and the two-sidedness of the medium. The Zurich based artist Jonas Etter uses a grinding machine on the printed typography which doesn’t offer a clear front or rear side, bringing forth a serial of 300 different and therefore unique cover artworks.
