Christian Wolfarth
Performance: Christian Wolfarth

Born in 1960 in Zürich, Wolfarth started to play drums at the age of 16. Since the middle of the 80s he’s been involved in many projects between jazz, improvised and composed New Music.

Since 1991 he played many solo concerts in all over Europe and Russia and been collaborating with the Al Maslakh Ensemble, John Butcher, Bertrand Denzler, Axel Dörner, John Edwards, Malcolm Goldstein, Eugen Gomringer, Barry Guy, Franz Hautzinger and many others. He’s also working for dance and theater projects and movies.

Unlike many contemporary drummers, Wolfarth has never expanded his instruments with electronic devices, nevertheless he explores an aesthetic that could be called “electronic” in some respects.

Reduction plays an important role in his music as does an almost obsessive love for the detail and an impressive palette of sonic possibilities that the drummer has been developing over the past 20 years of intense solo-playing. In his actual solo project, he just uses a numbers of cymbals.

“On first glance, aspects of the two pieces on this CD might remind one of the work by Eliane Radigue, Maryanne Amacher or Phill Niblock – though all the instruments here are acoustic and the recordings have not been re-worked in any way, the sonic qualities of Wolfarth’s bowed cymbals could easily be construed as produced by electronic means.” (Liner Notes for ‘Scheer’ by Jason Kahn, 2013)
