"Meinrad Kneer is a double bass player, composer, improviser, band-leader and label owner. His music moves along the musical boundaries of jazz, improvised, contemporary-composed and ethnic music.

He studied double bass and music in the Netherlands (conservatories of Hilversum and Amsterdam), where he quickly entered the Dutch jazz- and subsequently the international scene of free improvisation.

In 2002 he receives one of the most prestigious Dutch music awards: the 'Jur Naessens Music Award' for the project 'New Anatomy', realized with his band 'Dalgoo' and inspired by the work of the Russian writer Daniil Kharms.

His compositional work has been supported between 2001-2011 by the Dutch 'Funds voor de Scheppende Toonkunst' (today 'Funds Podiumkunsten') and in 2013 he recieved a grant from the Berlin senate to compose music for his Phosphoros Ensemble.

From 2007 to 2011 he organized the concert series 'U-Ex(perimental)' devoted to free improvisation, in cooperation with flutist Mark Alban Lotz, the Centraal Museum and the SJU Jazz Podium in Utrecht (NL).

Since 2011/2012 he lives in Berlin.

He currently leads the Meinrad Kneer Quintet, the Trio Baars / Kneer / Elgart, the Phosphoros Ensemble, and works as a co-leader in the groups Dalgoo, Rose/ Kneer/ Barrett and Sequoia.

He also plays a.o. with the following ensembles: Julie Sassoon Quartet, Andreas Willers Septet, Peter Van Huffel Octet and Bite the Gnatze, and worked with musicians as Najma Akhtar, Richard Barrett, Johannes Bauer, Han Bennink, Iva Bittová, Axel Dörner, Bill Elgart, Ceylan Ertem, Fred Frith, Tristan Honsinger, Paul Lovens, Roscoe Mitchell and Jon Rose, and ensembles as different Baraná formations, the Ab Baars Quartet, House of Mirrors, the Gravitones, Play Station 6, the Astronotes, the Joost Buis tentet, the AXYZ-Ensemble, the bigtet Tetzepi, the Ig Henneman String Quartet, the Marc Sinan Company, the KNM Ensemble and realized, with his own bands and as a side man, about 30 records.

During the last years he has been touring extensively in most countries of Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Turkey, North Africa and Mexico.

His internationally renowned label 'Evil Rabbit Records', founded together with pianist Albert van Veenendaal in 2006, is dedicated to contemporary improvised music rooted in the European culture."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Another portion of free chamber music is a quartet meeting from May last year, from Berlin. Here are the musicians: Simon Rose - baritone saxophone, Ernesto Rodrigues - viola, Guilherme Rodrigues - cello and Meinrad Kneer - double bass. The improvisation is formed here in seven episodes, which last over 65 minutes.

The English-Portuguese-German story is built on a certain dramatic dissonance. On the one hand, there are two intimate stringers - a cello and a viola, and on the other hand, a saxophone and a double bass dripping with post-jazz, which seems to stand in a slight stride. The latter quite quickly catches the common front with the baritone, but also often reaches for the bow and then becomes a very intimate weapon. The musicians take many steps towards the defiant, saturated with prepared sounds narration, on the other hand, a large part of their activity finds its outlet in pure, almost neoclassical phrasing. The initial phase of the recording raises a lot of question marks, but above all it dazzles with a very effective sound. It provides a lot of intimate emotions, sways in the wind and is saturated with a lot of bright interactions, a series of agile questions and even more cunning answers. In the second part, an impatient dynamic is born on the string bars, while the saxophone builds calm and balanced drones, but it needs one deep breath to bring improvisations to an almost free-jazz level. The next improvisation focuses on small, interrupted phrases, also feels full of nervous dynamics, and reaches full compatibility in the final phase, which emanates with pure phrases.

The fourth and fifth stories seem to be the crème de la crème of the entire album! First, a galaxy of winds, gasps, and string jerks. The story flows along a slight hill, upon reaching which a bitter viola serenade begins. The narrative becomes more delicate, cooler, at times charmingly fermented with the post-Baroque double bass string and again finds relief in pure phrases. In the fifth part, the musicians offer us some friction mechanics and jerking physics. On the one hand, a baritone as a troublemaker, on the other, small stringers that are successfully looking for a melody. Inside the narrative there is an intriguing, nervous pace that creates additional quality. The sixth improvisation begins sensational, built thanks to prepared short-cuts, then it goes into a rather bland development, to hide behind a dark ambient curtain in the final stage and weave one of the most beautiful moments of the recording. The final improvisation seems to be a sharp extra-time for its predecessor. Lots of dark drones, cool reactions, but also the lively singing of birds that may have settled on the window frames during the recording, becoming one of the components of the album's title."-Andrzej Nowak, Tribune of Spontaneous Music, translated by Google
