Sven Kacirek

Rewire


Sven Kacirek

Sven Kacirek is a German percussionist and electroacoustic composer with a knack for transforming the sounds of any surface into a wondrous, dreamlike soundscape. Rooted in improvisation and his training as a jazz drummer, Sven Kacirek’s compositions often substitute the drum kit in favour of tiny objects and surfaces that he can knock, hit or scratch – whether made of paper, wood or glass – weaving these rhythms into a mesmerizing patchwork of marimba, xylophone and piano. A prolific collaborator, his live performances see him employ an array of samplers to effectively clone himself and seamlessly improvise gentle layers of looped percussion into increasingly elaborate sonic structures.
