Sven Kacirek

Whether he's working on his solo project or performing with choreographers like Angelo Guerrero or Johnny Lloyd: Sven Kacirek develops his music with the drumsticks in his hands and in mind. No big surprise, as he is a musician who has built his reputation upon extraordinary skills as a jazz and drum’n’bass drummer. We don’t hear much classic drumming in his recent productions though, in which he has replaced his drumkit with tons of tiny things to knock on, to hit or to scratch, made out of paper, wood or glass. His sound consists of more than just fancy beats. All of the elements in his pieces, even the melodies and hooklines, are casually constructed from small percussive patterns. Although he completely does without the use of synthesizers, the result appears so electronic sometimes that one might invent the genre "acoustic electronica" for it – if that makes sense. Many of Sven Kacirek’s ideas come up during his live concerts, in which he multiplies himself with samplers, calmly improvising and generating very elaborate structures. Seeing his love and passion for all things percussive, it's only natural that he travels to Kenya regularly in order to collaborate with local musicians and their instruments.
