Album Description

Drawing inspirations from natural and human made shapes, colors and textures, The Shape of Noon is the first album by Swiss drummer Michel Maurer, showcasing his work both as a drummer and as a composer. The seven compositions blend written material with diverse improvisational strategies to create a peaceful and meditative music, sometimes delicate, even fragile, contrasted with strong, groove driven, tensed and chaotic moments. Michel Maurer has performed with his quartet Meridian since 2018 and has developed a recognizable sound through a unique musical relationship with guitarist Alex Levine, saxophonist Peyton Pleninger and bassist Ben Rolston.
