Deemer is a continuing conversation that is always inquisitive, searching and fresh. We are constantly shedding old skin, evolving and innovating.
The brain-child of Merijn Royaards and Dee Byrne, Deemer started life in 2006 as a weekly improvisation/electronics session in a warehouse in Hackney Wick. The project has since evolved into an installation/performance based electro-acoustic two-piece orchestra, whose aural narratives are created within fluid frameworks that map a trajectory in time, but leave the sonic textures and compositions entirely free and undetermined.
Deemer employ, among other things, alto saxophone, analogue electronics, synths, drum machines, filters, effects and TV monitors, to instantly compose, activate space, and blur the boundaries between free jazz and sound installation.

They released their debut album ‘Interference Patterns’ in December 2015 and ‘Live At The Vortex’ in December 2016 both on Luminous Label.
Deemer performed at the London Jazz Festival in November 2019 with special guest Johnny Hunter on drums. They recorded a studio album with Johnny which will be released on Luminous in 2020.
