„There is probably no comparable guitarist in germany, who is as versatile and creative as Peter Meyer“, writes the music magazine „Sound And Image“. Jazzthetik calls him „master of sounds“.

Guitarist and composer Peter Meyer lives in Berlin since 2004. There he studied music with Prof. Kurt Rosenwinkel at the Jazz Instiut. By melting all influences of jazz-improvisation, experimental sounds, prog- and indirock, eletronic and Neue Musik together, he creates a unique and unheard style, that makes him a remarkable voice of a new generation of jazz musicians. As a result he has been nominated two times, 2015 and 2017, for the echo jazz (the german grammy).

Together with his brother, Bernhard Meyer, he found „Melt Trio“ together with Drummer Moritz Baumgärtner in 2010. Their recordings“Melt”, “Hymnolia” and „Stroy“ where highly praised by the jazz cognoscenti. The Jazzpodium writes „Melt Trio plays in there one devision“ and it is „one of the most amaizing bands in the current scene“ (Rondo). In 2016 ARTE recorded a Melt Trio concert at the Donau 115. Beside his own projects Peter Meyer is member of the bands from Johanna Borchert, Dan Freeman, Lea W. Frey and Carlos Bica.

2018 the joint quartett by the Meyer brothers with Jim Black and Wanja Slavin will release there first recordings.

Solo and Live-Sampling
Since 2017 I am developing a live sampling & electronics setup. I program my own FXs, sampler, instruments and sound machines for that.
