Recorded live on one day, on 25 November, 2021 in London, the distinctive percussion of Swiss drummer Julian Sartorius met the virtuose electronics of Matthew Herbert to create the collaborative album Drum Solo (2022). This unique album exhibits Sartorius’s collection of drums, percussion, and augmented objects as the sole sound source. Intoxicating rhythmical formations are expertly formed by Sartorius’s idiosyncratic yet precise multi-layered style, with Herbert using these sounds and patterns to make deep sonic landscapes in real-time. Recorded within an extremely compressed timeframe, with no overdubs or production trickery, Drum Solo is an exploration into an introspective dialogue between two of Europe’s most compelling improvisers. Rewire 2023 presents a world premiere of a collaborative performance between Herbert and Sartorius, that sees the duo expand on their ambitious album in a live setting.
