„In the space between expectation and surprise, you will find De Beren Gieren, providing robust evidence that gold can still be mined from the union of piano, bass and drums. Based on the compositions of pianist Fulco Ottervanger, the trio uses the power of improvisation on the quest for a new form…”
The music of De Beren Gieren keeps flowing "at the fractures of styles", combining jazz with elements coming from classical, rock and electro-acoustic music. The hybrid, ambiguous, identity of the music is the backbone of the concept followed by pianist Fulco Ottervanger in his compositions.
The band De Beren Gieren was formed in 2009. Their 2nd album a raveling (2013) has been widely praised and resulted in the group's international breakthrough. Besides the collaboration with Portuguese trumpeter Susana Santos Silva, De Beren Gieren have also collaborated with other internationally renowned musicians such as Marc Ribot, Joachim Badenhorst, Louis Sclavis, Jean-Yves Evrard, Jan Klare and Ernst Rijeseger.
