people, I would like to introduce myself for those who don't know me yet. I have grown up in the countryside of #Switzerland
and was naturally exposed to the local musical culture of celebrating seasons. That's how I got interested in becoming part of these traditions and in learning the #dances
. Where ever I stay, I meet local artists to learn their traditional repertoire. At an early age, I learned to play the #guitar
from my mother. Later, I learned #DJing
, playing analogue #synthesizers
, the japanese drums and the jazz #drumkit
As an instrumentalist and performer who is specialized on #improvisation
, I am involved since 1999 in different musical projects which bring together elements like #live
, dance or live painting and which were brought to festivals and to the stage. I played in Taiko Zürich
from 2013 to 2017 regularly in Zürich and Fribourg. Since 2016, I am the artistic trainer of the tr'ensemble
training in #Basel
(traditional ethnic musical/dance art forms which include drumming, flutes and singing). This training had the name Taiko Generation
until recently. In the last weeks, I became the responsible over it and renamed it. Micah from Taiko Zürich
and me talked this week about how to proceed together with this new situation, since we always love to do things together. We came up with the idea of considering the two groups as sister groups and of having joint events (special lessons, performances etc.) in the future. I look forward so much to this and meeting you!
Music is for me a complex language used by human beings to communicate with each other. To create something in groups appeals to me because out of this arise moods, forms and elements which can arise only in this particular constellation.
If yoo know about people in the north-west part of Switzerland, the #Alsace
who would like to join our training in Basel, feel free to share the link tr'ensemble – Trommeln, Flöten und Tanz aus aller Welt
Das visuell und musikalisch ansprechende, sportliche Training mit Trommeln und Flöten, das vom Geist der Gruppe lebt, ist jedes Mal eine Reise in andere Kultursphären und noch unbekannte Rhythmen, Melodien und Körperbewegungen.
Thanks and see you soon!
