TETRAS - an improvising trio formed in 2010 with Jason Kahn (drums, percussion), Jeroen Visser (organ, electronics) and Christian Weber (contrabass). The group is based in Zürich, Switzerland and is on its way to New Zealand and Australia to perform at the Now Now Festival in Sydney.
They take a long-form approach to their music, with live sets approaching one hour or more. The gradual structural development of their pieces blurs the sense of time passing, moving through various fields of improvisation which owe as much to rock (This Heat, Can), jazz (Sun Ra, electric-era Miles Davis), minimal music (Steve Reich) or drone (Phil Niblock).
Invited to play at the 2012 NOW now Festival in Sydney, the last date on this tour, Tetras are also playing shows in New Zealand, Malaysia and several other Australian concerts in Melbourne and Canberra.
