Biography

Flat Earth Society (FES) is guerrilla jazzman Peter Vermeersch's brass band. Those who still can’t make head or tail of this ensemble can’t be blamed.

This composer-clarinettist’s band throws itself, at once, into theatre (Larf), then into film (The Oyster Princess by Ernst Lubitsch), followed by opera (Heliogabal at the Ruhr Triennale 2003) or into the Satchmo’s legacy (The Armstrong Mutations). Pianist/Rhodes specialist Uri Caine has already been caught singing their praises and rock icon Mike Patton (ex-Faith No More and a good friend of John Zorn) immediately released a best-of in the US, after having heard the CD only once.
