about

Misinterpretations is the second album of zheimeer; it contains “flawed” renditions of classical and popular music hits. The chosen pieces have been deformed in a variety of ways, denuded of tonality or subjected to microtonal transformations – all these proceedings emphasized their grotesque nature, previously hidden behind the disguise of correctness and tastefulness. The through-line of the album is a fragment of Paganini‘s Caprice No. 24 in A minor performed by an inept virtual violinist, “anti-Paganini”. Thus, zheimeer holds a discussion with the issue of musical dexterity and virtuosity – he seems to be more interested in the initial stage of learning musical instruments, when everything may happen, when mistakes and false notes are unavoidable; those ineptitudes, uncertainties, weaknesses, and slips pique zheimeer‘s interest and the album Misinterpretations pays homage to them.

zheimeer: the most important members of this band are electronic musical instruments and devices (a sampler, a sequencer, a synthesizer, etc.); their creative expression is possible thanks to the help of the only representative of humankind in the group, Adrian Zalewski, who also coordinates their actions and looks after them during concerts.
What is crucial for zheimeer is a retreat from the idea of “being serious”, which seems to be the prevailing manner of operating within the discourse of avant-garde music, and turnaround towards creative work based on unencumbered joy of making sounds, without setting lofty goals and searching for philosophical justifications. The album Misinterpretations is zheimeer‘s next step towards this direction.
