Monoglot’s music thrives on repetitive patterns layered over a pulsating rock grove, pop mock-up and improv. It merges these elements quite accessibly and draws out melodies to shine through the fabric every now and then.
The Basel- and Berlin-based quintet expands genre boundaries but is perhaps best described as an avant-rock and minimal-post-jazz act. It consists of Fabian Willmann and Sebastian Von Keler on tenor saxophones, Kristinn Kristinsson on guitar, Pascal Eugster on bass and Luca Glausen on drums.
Monoglot played six international tours and released two studio albums since 2014. The latest, “Wrong Turns And Dead Ends”(2017), was named „A post-jazz/prog masterpiece“ by The Math Rock Times and „daring, free-spirited and fresh“ by German Jazz Thing magazine.
