Description

In his solo album, Nik Bärtsch's Mobile drummer Nicolas Stocker breaks the boundaries of new music, technoid minimal music and free improvisation. Based on his art of polymetric playing and spectral melodic side trips, he develops an enchanting web of rhythmical structures and ethereal sounds.

"The drum set is the core of every band but also an orchestra in itself. It is a band within the band: with various sounds and resonances, often hidden and unheard behind its rhythms, patterns and structures. Nicolas Stocker is on a mission to open our ears for these sounds, shapes and spaces. As band member of Kali, Nik Bärtsch's Mobile and in collaboration with Marena Whitcher, Nicolas Stocker has already built his reputation internationally as a differentiated and highly skilled drummer. On this album he distils his wide interest and knowledge of styles, genres and drum techniques to a personal essence and message. Nicolas Stocker puts his whole mind, soul, heart and spirit into his playing to let his drum set speak by itself." - Nik Bärtsch

'Solo' is the 21st release on the label Ronin Rhythm Records, a platform for new creative music between new minimal, funk und ritual groove music, run by ECM recording artist Nik Bärtsch.
