about

ART.IS.∙ the music (part II)

solo extended snare drum

The album is me playing to 8 different themes that are also interpreted visually by artist Eva Jeske in the ART.IS.∙ book (part I). Every piece I’ve recorded can be seen/ heard like a little statue. The music doesn’t have a common musical form and for the most part doesn’t even have a development that you would expect in music. The music is very static. This creates the possibility to look/listen to it more deeply, see/hear it from different angles, walk around it with your ears, and discover different movements, layers, depth, colors, structures and details.

Etienne Nillesen Cologne, Germany

The snare drum is a core part of Nillesen’s artistic practice. With an instrumental and physical approach, he explores and pushes the limits of the natural acoustics of the snare drum using conventional playing techniques as well as extended techniques and preparations.
His work involves elements of conceptual and spontaneous composition, structured improvisation, performance, and sound art.
