Sebastian Arnold // Solo-Performer

Sebastian Arnold

Sebastian Arnold is a genuine one-man band behind his drum kit and synthesizers. Watching him for the first time, you may think of someone driving a spaceship with drumsticks. However, his mission goes beyond flying: since 2008 the "mad scientist drummer" has been exploring the intersections of instrumental and electronic club music. All alone on stage, he is building song structures by layering loops and drum-triggered sequences with acoustic drums, keyboards and vocals. The result is an organic mixture of elektro, post-rock, drum'n'bass and indietronica. A stellar performance!

„Berlin, in fact Germany in general seems to have it all going on at the moment. [...] This chap, Sebastian Arnold, has been somebody I've been watching for a couple of years now. He's taking the looping concept a stage further by being a multi instrumental sound bank for his own creations in addition to triggering sequences from his Nord Modular.“

„Multisimultaninstrumentalist Sebastian Arnold pervertiert Genres wie Lounge, (Free) Jazz, Postrock, Indie und Electronica und kultiviert dies in seinem eigenen Sound. [...] Der Ausnahmemusiker spielt sich in einen wahren Rausch und besonders bei den zahlreichen Improvisationen, Variationen und Taktverschiebungen klebt man mit den Ohren förmlich an den Speakern. Nur wenigen gelingt die Symbiose von Tanzbarkeit und Experimentierwut. Sebastian Arnold ist einer der wenigen, die das drauf haben.“

„Mit der Verwirklichung, als einziger Musiker in die Rolle eine komplexen Bandkosmos zu schlüpfen, ist dem Schlagzeuger Sebastian Arnold mit dieser EP ein extrem außergewöhnliches Album gelungen.“
STICKS Magazin (10/2010)
