TWIRLS QUARTET features saxophonist Alexander Beierbach, pianist Nicolas Schulze, as well as Meinrad Kneer on double-bass and Yorgos Dimitriadis on drums. The quartet is the extended body of the TWIRLS DUO with an original, personal band sound.
The improvising ensemble explores soundscapes and textures that draw from a variety of musical backgrounds. Together they interweave different layers of density and space, overlaying and contrasting melodic-harmonic interplay with sound sequences, or repetitive themes and motifs with constanly ecolving passages. Hereby the band constantly questions and redefines the classical role of each instrument in the full quartet sound, as well as in the multiple possibilities of instrumentation.
In May 2022, TWIRLS QUARTET recorded their debut Album at Emil-Berliner-Studio Berlin, which will be released in early 2023.
