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.
