Live Act Jazz Experimental Minimal
Plaistow - Jazz Experimental Minimal Live Act in Geneva

Plaistow Short Info

“(...) They make you think about sound and about time. They can sweep you away with a burst of lyricism or pin you to the spot. They’ve been one of the best surprises of this year’s London Jazz Festival.” - Richard Williams (2014)

The organic depth of their forthcoming album Titan (released October 6th 2015 on Plaistow Music) is a bone chilling experience performed solely on drums, acoustic bass and a grand piano.
Combining elements of minimalism, repetitive patterns, odd-time signatures and noise, Plaistow
builds from the strong fundaments from previous works like The Crow, Lacrimosa and Citadelle.
This group of amazing musicians is an organism of it’s own. No mathematics, no complicated array of notes. It’s not jazz, it’s not conceptual. The music on Titan is deeply rooted in groove - aggressive by times. Plaistow can build tension and suspense in their compositions so subtle, singular notes and small time variations come explosively and odd harmonies are filled with emotion.
Founded in 2007 in Geneva, Switzerland, Plaistow has played more than two hundreds concerts
worldwide and released several EPs and albums.
