Christoph Haberer – drums, electronics, composition

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (14th of March 2016): “I can`t find any prototype for this CD, no similar way of connecting the vocal and instrumental concepts of sound: `Animata` (Jazzhaus Musik).
It is the result of the collaboration of the young Swiss vocalist Sarah Buechi with her English lyrics and the widely experienced percussionist Christoph Haberer who seems to travel between ethnological research, machined asthetics and electronical sound fantasies.
Buechi has proven herself to have a versatile way of singing. She possesses an almost girly and beautiful cantilena, which she can colour in marvelous ways or fuse with metal but from which she can distance herself as well with whispering passages, speech bubbles, yodel like colours and dramatic outbreaks.
The lyrics are all written by her. One is encouraged to read along with them at least once. They deal with wondrous love dreams, hunger for wisdom, love, joy, are cryptic, ordinary, philosophical, surreal, metaphysical.
While consuming the Gesamtkunstwerk (total work of art) the lyrics play a minor role or even no role at all during the oustanding musical events and their totally different course on this journey. As for example in one piece where both knock about with sensefree scats.”

Audio Samples:


CD “Polyritmia”


Haberer’s fascination with polyrhythms has played a role in his work over many years – in the new solo album polyrhythms have become a standard feature. Almost all the pieces have an underlying polyrhythmic structure, each one may be different but it is a component part of the composition.

Audio Samples:


CD “Trommelzeit”


Starting point for the CD ´Trommelzeit´ was ´handplayed and live´ - "Haberer combines
electronic drums, synthesizer sections, marimbaphone and steeldrum sounds with
acoustic, polyrhythmic drumming in an extremely entertaining and exciting way."

Audio Samples:


CD “and what about … time?”


The host of instruments ranges from analogue and digital synthesizers, samplers, keyboards and drum-pads to MIDI controllers. Christoph Haberer has played his music in a computer-based sequencer-program with which he repeatedly exceeded the boundaries of pre-composed and improvised passages, between ´played´ loops and ´programmed´ overdubs..

Audio Samples:


CD “pulsation”


“With a solid feeling for the relationship between rhythm and melody, Haberer takes
a breathtaking walk on the fine line between european, asian and african sound cultures.“
