liner notes: Freestyle Avant-Jazz
Young and contemporary, powerful but still playful âEUR" the sound of FRACTAL (from latin fractus = broken) is intelligently playing with breaches between new shores and convention.
The quartet around guitar player Yves Reichmuth is experimenting with anarchical wit with composed and improvised matter, creating an intense music of rare authenticity.
This music is sometimes flowing and pushing, sometimes archaic and angular, but always clear and accessible.
Tonal material like tunes, formal structures or vamps are used as a starting point for collective instant composing, which may result in punk-rock-style grooves, swing jazz, explosive noise eruptions, dark and entrancing themes or ambient soundscapes.
Alongside the explosive momentum of this music, there is always a place for filigree moments and a healthy dose of nonchalance, which makes this band a great experience.
The musicians are some of the most sought-after cracks of the younger swiss avant-garde scene, having been touring all over the world and played with famous artists like Marc Ribot, Ellery Eskelin, Christian Weber, Manuel Mengis, Martin Schütz, Ensemble Modern etc.
