Just uploaded a new solo recording I did with a snare drum and preparations. No electronics or effects are used so all sounds are acoustic. Hope you enjoy it!
2016 just started but already some great things are happening!
There will be a recording with a great new trio that I’m really excited about. It’s with Philip Zoubek/ prep. piano, Stefan Schönegg/ double bass and I’m playing prep. snare drums.
I’m working on a piece by John Cage right now called ‘ 27’10.554″ for a percussionist’ played on 2 prepared snare drums. I want to play more composed (contemporary) music this year because there is so much amazing music out there that I love and I really want to grow as a player in that area! Composers like Cage, Tenney, Lucier but also younger not so well known composers. It is such a great source of information that also flows into my improvisations which, off course, is still my main focus.
End of February beginning of March I will be on tour with ‘Elisabeth Fügemann’s EMIßATETT’ in Germany. I really like the record we have made and it’s available on Schraum records! Elisabeth Fügemann/ cello, Robert Landfermann/ double bass, Matthias Muche/ trombone, Philip Zoubek/ prep.piano, Etienne Nillesen/ prep.snare drum.
This year there will also be a new record of ‘Sebastian Gramss FOSSILE 3’ with Sebastian Gramss/ double bass, Rudi Mahall/ clarinets, Etienne Nillesen/ drums.
I will try to keep this site more up to date with the concerts/ performances I play for everybody interested. Also check out IMPAKT, Cologne based collective for Improvised music for more concerts/ performances happening in and around Cologne!!
Have a great 2016!!
