Hanna Schwarz and Phillip Sollmann

Squares and Triangles
Squares and Triangles are a band founded in 2007 by a group of primarily London- based artists interested in the possibilities of improvised music. When playing music together, Squares and Triangles' focus is not on style or genre but on a process of communication, whereby the group finds structures and songs through intuitive group logic. This is neither âjamming' nor conventional song-writing. It is a constant state of tension between playing what feels like music, and what feels like a mistake or a surprise.
