MYRMEK – Vendredi 6 mars

Myrmek (Metal, Rock& Doom, New Music)

Ouverture: 20h-00h – Concert: env.21h30 – Entrée: 7.- 

« Myrmek is the band project of Christian Müller (bass clarinet) and Loïc

Grobéty (bass). They met by chance in the field of reductionist collective
impro. But the breaks between the rehearsals led them to coffee and
cookies, to talks about distortions, severe amplification, to listen
together music of the Swans, Meshuggah, Steamboat Switzerland, Iannis
Xenakis …

The interest in massive sounds led them to a long musical research and
after two years of work in the laboratory and in front of massive amps
they present a distinct musical world, that mixes two schools together: On
one side the dust of the road to the beer station of Metal, Rock & Doom,
on the other side the art and sharp strictness of New Music.

In the drummer Grégoire Quartier they have found the ideal partner to
create a heavy, deep sounding trio. He with huge, low drums and cymbals,
they with their amps and bunch of distortions on both instruments.
Together they are about to prepare and rehearse the strict, series-based
compositions (also known as ‘monoliths’) by Müller and the energetic,
conceptual compositions by Grobéty. »
