Spherical sounds and singing melodies invite you to dream.
On his debut album Light on the surface (Unit Records, April 6, 2023), drummer Simon Chmel deals with both a personally difficult time and pandemic situations and feelings: What can give confidence and hope? What can be a ray of hope?
Together with his quartet, he transforms his thoughts and feelings into musical stories. In doing so, they interweave acoustic instruments with electronic elements and bring them into a fine balance. In doing so, they consciously focus on the essentials, creating clarity and transparency. Their mutual trust creates an intimacy between energetic playing and fragility. Together they make the music breathe and float.
