Mere is a new project that began as a soundtrack and continues as an experimental, dark-ambient jazz group. Guitar, drums and bass clarinet provide an intense and improvised journey into the abyss.
The trio first came together to work on a soundtrack for a Dutch TV documentary called Visserman. Having known each other for some time this was the first time they had combined together to write music and the name Mere comes from the Dutch word for ‘more’.
Each member adds a different influence to the sound, the modal finger picked guitar playing of Thomas Cruijsen adds a sense of movement while Gareth Davis takes both folk and free jazz ideas to play against Leo Fabriek's free rock influenced drum work. The tracks were recorded all in single takes with just a quick discussion of outline and tuning as a basic guide.
CD - Housed in a 6 panel digipak. Instant download available + Bandcamp code inserted inside the sleeve.
