I am a German drummer and I´m currently playing with the Amsterdam (NL) based alt/progressive rockband “Abraham Sarache” and with the German pop/rock band “Frollein Motte”.
Besides being active in this two bands and I am doing international touring and other projects or sessions with various artists, mainly from Germany but also from the Netherlands or the US. I do not only record drums for other people but being also involved in songwriting and composing processes, the arrangements as well as the mixing and the producing of the music.

How I work:
Developing a great drum part for your music is the key element to achieve a solid rhythm track.
Sometimes I am presented with programmed demo drums, which already give me an idea and set a guideline. Often there is no drum demo and I am totally free, too. Once I listened to the music, that is given to me and I can feel a connection to it, I will have ideas immediately. Transfering those ideas to the drums can only take a few hours, a couple of days or maybe a week. I usually record 3 to 4 full takes per song and then chose the one with the best vibe, afterwards comes editing.
