The release of One Mirrors Many on Sdban Ultra marks the first edition on vinyl of De Beren Gieren’s outstanding latest album. The record came out to huge critical acclaim in 2015, but never made it to wax until the Ghent based imprint fell for it.
De Beren Gieren is a trio of explorers and improvisers that debuted in 2011 and quickly made a name for themselves in the Belgian contemporary jazz scene. One Mirrors Many is their fifth album already, and the first one in which the band experiments with incorporating electronic analogue elements to their sound. Analogue effects, tape loops and contact microphones are used and adapted to their instruments. During the live performance, the electronic gear is triggered live by the musicians to accompany De Beren Gieren’s compositions and improvisations. This approach not only resulted in a great deal of excellent international reviews, it also established De Beren Gieren’s reputation of the most adventurous and influential jazz act around.
