Starting in 2014, the percussionist Thomas Sauerborn from Cologne spent two years studying at the Rytmisk Musikkonservatorium in Copenhagen, where he met the Lithuanian saxophone player Kārlis Auziņš and the Polish bass player Tomo Jacobson. Together with pianist Lucas Leidinger, also from Cologne, the four eventually formed the quartet Mount Meander.
Theirs was to be freely improvised music, free particularly in its approach to the thematic, harmonic, rhythmic material, stylistically open and diverse. The music’s structure and form were to develop in the moment, fed by the four musicians’ collaborative spirit – not only in terms of one idea following another, but also in the sense that a single idea can become the driving force for the process shaping the music itself. The concept works: the voices of Auziņš’ saxophone, Leidinger’s piano, Jacobson’s bass and even Sauerborn’s drums often merge into dense sound clusters which begin to pulsate, only to suddenly explode and spark new developments.
