Hunter-Gatherer is the new band of Swiss drummer and composer David Meier (known for his work with Schnellertollermeier and Things to Sounds). Here he presents a quintet with five of the most active and exciting exponents of the young Swiss Jazz and Improv Scene.
Hunter-Gatherer challenges the listener with a sonic world of opposites and extremes - passages of intimate fragility stand next to uncompromising collective improvisations, and atmospheric Morton Feldman-moments weave their way into Bartókian melodies...
The compositions are often based on unusual intervallic structures and complex rhythmic elements. They suggest a clear aesthetic direction, yet they leave a lot of space and decisions open.
