descriptions, reviews, &c.

"In late 2009 Jason Kahn approached Jeroen Visser about starting a project together. After a few months of playing they decided to invite Christian Weber into the group, who Jason knew from previous bands. In early 2010 the group began meeting regularly in Jeroen's studio to develop their sound. The Double LP Pareidolia documents these sessions.

Tetras take a long-form approach to their music, with live sets approaching one hour or more. The gradual structural development of their pieces blurs the sense of time passing, moving through various fields of improvisation which owe as much to rock (This Heat, Can), as they do to jazz (Sun Ra, electric-era Miles Davis), minimal music (Steve Reich) or drone (Phil Niblock).

Jason Kahn (drums, percussion)

Jason Kahn began playing music in Los Angeles during the early 1980's, initially releasing records on the SST label. During the 1990's he lived in Berlin, playing drums and percussion in many projects of improvised and electronic music. Since 2000 he has been living in Zurich. FSS released Jason Kahn's collaboration with Jon Mueller, Phase in 2010.

Jeroen Visser (organ, electronics)

Getting his start in the 1980's Amsterdam Ultra scene, Jeroen Visser has worked extensively as sound engineer with The Ex, Tom Cora and many more. He played with The Pale Nudes during the 1990's, and currently tours with ./morFrom/. and Trio Kazanchis, with Ethiopian singer and krar player Mesele Asmamaw.

Christian Weber (contrabass)

Swiss bassist Christian Weber is involved in numerous projects, ranging from jazz and free improvisation to contemporary chamber music. He has collaborated with a wide spectrum of musicians, ranging from John Butcher to Otomo Yoshihide.

Tetras complement and reverse the roles: the bass plays with minimalist groove patterns, soundscapes are created from an acoustic drum, the organ goes beyond all the cliches as part of the rhythm section."-Kuntsraum Walcheturmz



Webster's Dictionary defines "Pareidolia" as a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, and hidden messages on records played in reverse.


Artist Biographies:

" is a musician, artist and writer. He was born 1960 in New York and grew up in Los Angeles. He re-located to Europe in 1990 and is currently based in Zürich.

As an electronic musician, vocalist and drummer Kahn collaborates regularly with many musicians, both in improvised settings and in the context of graphical scores which he composes for specific groups.

Kahn has exhibited his installations in museums, galleries, art spaces and public sites internationally. These works focus on the idea of space: the conceptual and physical juncture points, its production and dissolution, and our relation to it as a political, social and environmental medium.

Kahn's other activities include sound pieces for radio, film, dance and theater. He has also designed numerous CD, LP and cassette covers. As a writer, his work has appeared in books, magazines and as liner notes to many audio publications.

Performing regularly around the world, Kahn has given concerts throughout Europe, North and South America, Australia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey and South Africa.

In 2011 Kahn started the Editions imprint to publish his own recordings and writings."
