About the artists
Hailing from opposite corners of the globe, Merz Trio’s members can only agree on two things: (1) how to pronounce the word “Merz” in a faux German accent and (2) that shopping for concert clothes should be classified as a form of torture. They understand that what they do is a conversation between themselves, the composer, their audience, and the changing world they step into each day. The trio’s name, Merz, is a term coined by German artist and polymath Kurt Schwitters, who once decorated his parents’ house in Hanover floor to ceiling with found objects and insisted that art only occurred in shared spaces. So Merz refers to connection, to sharing, to possibility. And yes, they’re very glad Schwitters didn’t live with them.
