METABOLISM Short Info

Building on a remarkable start since its inception, with thanks to their debut
album “reanimation“ (2013) as well as appearances in crazy surgeon outfts,
the seven members of Laurent Méteau's METABOLISM will present their new
album “UTOPIA“ this November.

Several international tours, along with participation in prestigious events
including the ZKB Jazzpreis 2012, radio show JazzZ on Espace 2 in 2013, the
Label Suisse festival 2014 and Suisse Diagonales Jazz 2015 has made their
music evolve and has allowed the band to focus on the fundamentals.

No more masks, no more scalpels! The new direction for these former doctors
dressed in green and turquoise leaves room for a more interactive form of
expression, where each musician’s personality enhances the compositions of
bandleader Laurent Méteau.

Drawing inspiration from architectural avant-garde styles like the Japanese
Metabolist movement, Laurent Méteau has designed the new pieces' plans,
leaving space for his bandmates' talents alongside his utopian vision of the
music.

A musical renewal captured in the mountains of east Switzerland, in a house
temporarily transformed into a recording studio. Limited technical equipment,
analog post-production ; Laurent Méteau’s METABOLISM’s fascinating universe
is materialised on the self-produced “UTOPIA“ LP, which will be released with a
tour in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and Czech Republic from the 3rd - 18th
of November 2015.
