Julian Sartorius Short Info

The beat has always been the defining element in the life of Julian Sartorius. Born 1981 in Thun (Switzerland), he began his first drum lessons at the age of five. With his rhythms, which push the boundaries of New Music, Hip-Hop and Worldmusic, Sartorius reveals the endless possibilities and range of his instrument. He often prepares his drums, works with unusual, unprocessed acoustic sounds and develops, beat by beat, an unheard environment of sound.

Julian Sartorius was taught by musicians such as Fabian Kuratli, Pierre Favre and Norbert Pfammatter at the Jazz Schools in Bern and Lucerne. He has collaborated with Matthew Herbert, Shahzad Ismaily, Sylvie Courvoisier, Dimlite, Drew Gress, Colin Vallon, Merz, Fred Frith, Sophie Hunger and many others, and has toured throughout Europe, South America, Japan, Canada and the US.

With his solo show he has toured widely throughout Europe, playing on bills with the likes of Deerhoof, Faust, Marc Ribot, Jaki Liebezeit, Arto Lindsay, and has released several solo albums, including the 12-LP-Box set «Beat Diary», consisting of 365 beats and a companion photo book. He has won several prestigious awards and in 2014 was nominated for the inaugural Swiss Music Prize along with a selection of the most influential Swiss musicians.
