Meta Marie Louise

 Biel/Bienne, Bern, CHE

Meta Marie Louise is celebrating 'improvised music / instant composing'.
The group draws inspiration from different elements:


Meta Marie Louise creates a varied and dense universe, which is influenced by flower pots and rainbows harsh noise at times and ambient sounds at others, which lead into groove driven psychedelic beats and melodies. A fusion between Lady Gaga and John Cage.

Meta Marie Louise has been founded in 2010. Collaborated with different singers and poets such as Max Usata, Momo and Ana Igluka and performed in The Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Germany and Lithuania including Festivals such as Jazzwerkstatt Festival CH, WEfestival NL, Les Digitales CH, Vilnius Jazzfestival LT and others.

A new 10" Vinyl will be released in October 2015 featuring Ana Igluka from Nantes, FRA.
