 Mueros

Whilst base camp has only recently been established in Bruxelles, Mueros has voyaged since 2005 through the expression of the indecipherable, using sound textures, text, improvisation. Assimilating their influences and avoiding traditional categorization, they oscillate amongst the vast spectrum of possibility that is sound, song, minimalism and the unavoidable cultural mess that calls itself “rock” (since logic dictates that it is sufficient to get a guitar and plug it into and amplifier…apparently). Their wayward journey through the barren landscape of modern music has produced a number of albums and tours as well as collaborations with other ‘artistic’ media (theatre, dance, video) - instances rather than proof of an honourable lineage.
Mueros consists of: Matthieu C. Vergez (guitar, harmonium, voice), Chris Farmer (guitar, loops, voice), Jason Van Gulick (drums, percussion).

Jason VAN GULICK

A solo that breathes life into ideas!!!
Between experimentation and tradition, between acoustic broadside and electric languor.
The drum kit as the only instrument and means of expression. The only sound generator… or nearly
“A drum kit electrified, amplified, modulated, transformed. The sound comes from all sides and appears to multiply itself: languid beats, rippled textures, resonances… The whole sounds like softened metal, contrasted free rock”
belettejazz.wordpress.com
“minimalist passages amongst free deflagrations, the result is awe-inspiring, humble and exact.”
