Gerri put together an international quintet for a one-off appearance during the Bimhuis October Meeting Festival in 2016. Without rehearsing they played fifteen minutes of fluent and colourful music and impressed quite a few. A year later the group expanded their work into a full set of compositions and improvisation concepts written by Gerri. The music was successfully premiered at the Gerri Jäger Carte Blanche concert at the Bimhuis and during the Get Close to Talent Concert Series at the Korzo in The Hague.

“Instruments in free fall, a musical amusement park of uninhibited tumbling and daredevil acrobatics.” (Korzo)

“Dark, hypnotic, very nicely composed and played super tight.” (FRNKFRT, Peter Bruyn)

Gerri Jäger DOUBLE DUO

4tet b&w noise + logo

The sound of the quartet is great. A kind of deliberately stuttering and jerky post-rock. You could even put the label ‘industrial’ on it – especially when Vanoli begins to process the strings with a spanner and the group starts producing heavy emergency weather drones. Then there is no more escape possible. Pop and entertainment music usually has an escapistic function. The music of Gerri Jäger is the opposite. It can be heard as the oppressive sound of the zeitgeist. FRNKFRT (Peter Bruyn)
