• On the occasion of the Nuits Sonores circuit, the Périscope invites the drummer Anton Eger for his solo project Æ which promises an immersive live at the crossroads of genres.
For more than a decade, Anton Eger has stood out as one of the most exciting and talented drummers on the European jazz scene. Anyone who has seen Eger perform in concert with artists such as Phronesis and Marius Neset will recognize him for his natural flamboyance, a keen sense of showmanship, and a mania for swapping his drumsticks for knives. Beyond the show, Anton Eger is a true musician with a completely unique approach.
With Æ , Eger's confidence and know-how are most visible, and the result is nothing less than spectacular. Thanks to a delicious mix of melodies, offbeat rhythms and a melting pot of production techniques, Eger makes room for his imagination, the complexity of his playing and offers an incredible texture to his album.
These words alone might be enough to grasp the impact of this album « A mix of electro, contemporary hardcore beats but also some retro musical pleasures a bit guilty to defy genres ».
