Grid Mesh / BCPH Quartet in Syracuse

From Metropolis Underground:

March 18th 2009 – Grid Mesh w/BCPH Quartet

Grid Mesh: As usual in Berlin, the Grid Mesh group is the result of a project involving musicians who themselves are involved in many other projects of apparent complete stylistic heterogeneity. Consequently, a Grid Mesh piece of music is rarely monolithic when it comes to style and instead draws from the various free improvisation backgrounds of the musicians while still resulting in a unique band sound that often has early Jazz collective improvisation qualities. The best metaphor is probably to compare it to a trans-continental journey by train where every time you look out the window the landscape has completely changed while still feeling at home.

BCPH Quartet

John Bateman: Bass, Steven Cerio: Drums/Percussion, Michael Hentz: Guitars/Loops, Michael P: Guitars/ Loops
