WERL3 are Aidan Baker, Gareth Davis and Tomas Järmyr. This special one-time-expansion of WERL, took place in 2019 during the Moving Noises Festival at Christuskirche Bochum (Germany).
WERL3 played a completely improvised set, which diversified the sound of WERL into a constantly evolving post jazz drone piece. You can hear and feel how the three musicians have an effect on each other, slowly brewing that 40 minutes beast consisting of erupting bass clarinet sounds, floating guitars and accentuated drums. All of this happening in the elaborate architecture of Christuskirche Bochum, where the three musicians stood in one wide line on the altar. The session got mastered by Ian Hawgood, who worked out all the details of the recording in a very convincing way.
WERL3 comes in an edition of 200 copies pressed on vinyl with two different colourways: trans orange (completely transparent) and solid orange (semi-transparent). The matte reverseboard sleeve features artwork by Aidan Baker and the labels come with live photographies taken at Christuskirche Bochum, during the live set.
