Info zu In Geometry (Jazz Thing Next Generation Vol. 83)
Claire Parsons ‘In Geometry’ is a multinational collaboration between the Luxembourgish/British singer Claire Parsons, the Israeli guitarist Eran Har Even, the French/Luxembourgish drummer and pianist Jérôme Klein, the Luxembourgish bass player Pol Belardi and drummer Niels Engel. The project is based in Luxembourg, Brussels and Amsterdam and is a vigorous contribution to the constantly developing modern European jazz sound. A perfect continental hub for the charismatic, imaginative bandleader. The five have perfected their inner symmetry in numerous concerts.
Their first album ‘In Geometry’ is the result of Claire’s search for her own musical identity and is inspired by composition techniques that study geometrical forms and their impact on the theoretical and practical world of music. Each of the musicians bring their unique vision and style to the music and thus create a very intimate and exciting atmosphere with the intention of creating harmony and balance within the existing environment. The album reveals their broad influences that go from jazz, folk, electro, pop, rock to classical music.
The young Austrian illustrator Astrid Rothaug created the visual concept of the album and has drawn by hand the original video for the first single of the album ‘No Shape'. The objects represented by the illustrations will find their place among the musicians on stage during the performances and will allow an exciting interaction between audio and visuals in a full 'In Geometry' experience. The album is launched by the label Double Moon Records together with the popular German jazz magazine “Jazz thing” in the Next Generation Vol. 83 series.
