Artist Biographies:

"Bernard Joseph Baron (born June 26, 1955 in Richmond, Virginia) is an American avant-garde jazz drummer who plays frequently with Bill Frisell and John Zorn.

Baron was born on June 26, 1955, in Richmond Virginia. When he was nine, he taught himself how to play the drums. As a teenager, he played in rock bands and dixieland jazz groups. After high school, he spent a year at the Berklee College of Music. He moved to Los Angeles in the early 1970s and embarked on a professional career, playing with Carmen McRae and Al Jarreau. He worked as a freelance drummer and session musician with Chet Baker, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, and Hampton Hawes.

In 1982 he moved to New York City and joined guitarist Bill Frisell, with whom he would play often throughout his career. He also played in groups with Red Rodney, Fred Hersch, Enrico Pieranunzi, and Marc Johnson. Starting in the late 1980s, he became a bigger part of the avant-garde jazz scene when he played regularly at the Knitting Factory, recorded with singer Laurie Anderson, and began a long association with John Zorn. For several years he participated in Zorn's projects Naked City and Masada.

Baron contributed to David Bowie's Outside (1995). Bowie would later praise Baron, stating: "Metronomes shake in fear, he's so steady." "

"Born and raised in South Dakota, percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky has been an innovator and collaborator throughout her life. Already during her studies in Iowa and Germany and later on her international solo tours, Robyn Schulkowsky has dedicated herself to revealing the wonders of percussion to people all over the world. Her continuous exploration of new sound dimensions has led to the development of many new and unusual instruments.

An active musician on five continents, Robyn Schulkowsky moved to Germany during a heyday of experimental and adventurous classical composition. She has premiered and recorded some of the most important percussion works of the 20th and 21st centuries, working with composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen, Kevin Volans, John Cage, Morton Feldman and Iannis Xenakis, presenting their works during tours that included the former Soviet Union, India, Africa, South America, Korea, Japan as well as at major European music festivals.

Robyn Schulkowsky's adventurous nature connects her with exceptional project partners and alternative performance spaces. She has collaborated on multi-media projects with legendary African drummer Kofi Ghanaba, avant-garde visual artist Guenther Uecker, the actress Edith Clever and groundbreaking choreographer Sasha Waltz, and has founded - together with Stephan Andreae - the annual festival Drums Summit Bonn.

Robyn Schulkowsky is particularly passionate about education. Since 1998, as founder of Rhythm Lab, she has taken drumming workshops to countless cities, incorporating indigenous drumming styles and patterns from around the globe, and involving students, professionals and aficionados alike in workshops and concerts. Primarily directed at children and teenagers, the project focuses on the idea of "music as the experience and not the product", aiming to make rhythm tangible by experimenting with music, sound and movement. To this end, Robyn Schulkowsky works closely with the sound artist Lukas Kuehne, with whom she developed new percussion instruments. In spring 2009 she worked with 100 young budding musicians on her new music-theater project based on the story of Antigone which was presented in July in a former cattle-market hall in Ingolstadt (Germany) with resounding success.

Schulkowsky's virtuosity has been captured on over 20 recordings, including CDs with violist Kim Kashkashian and trumpet players Reinhold Friedrich and Nils Petter Molvaer, and seminal recordings of compositions by Christian Wolff and Morton Feldman. She is a composer herself, and in 2005, she performed improvisations and her own compositions twice daily for two weeks on a "sound sculpture" in New York's Grand Central Station. In 2008 her opera The Child of the Sea Otter was premiered in Oldenburg (Germany) and repeated in Mannheim and Berlin.

Last season in Sweden, together with the Gothenburg Symphony and fellow renowned solo percussionists Anders Loguin, Mika Takehara, Eirik Raude and Anders Haag, Robyn Schulkowsky performed the critically-acclaimed premiere of "Glorious Percussion" by Sofia Gubaidulina under the baton of celebrated young conductor Gustavo Dudamel. This new ensemble has since named itself after the piece and has been appearing with several important orchestras, most recently with the Berlin Philharmonic.This season, Robyn Schulkowsky's frenetic global pace continues with a month-long tour of South America with trumpet player Reinhold Friedrich featuring concerts and workshops, as well as a US tour of an Armenian project with violist Kim Kashkashian."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Robyn Schulkowsky, New Music's high priestess of percussion, and Joey Baron, one of the liveliest and most creative drummers in New York's Downtown scene, come from very different avant-garde traditions. Yet in meshing their talents when they play, categories blur - or rather dissolve. What they bring with them is a kind of oceanic experience.

Joey Baron is at home in contemporary jazz. He is one of John Zorn's favorite drummers and can often be heard alongside Bill Frisell; he played with Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Jim Hall and Carmen McRae; and has also spanned the Atlantic in his recent work with Jakob Bro as well as made an album in duet with Irène Schweizer on Intakt Records.

Robyn Schulkowsky moved from the USA to Europe, where she collaborated on and brought to life the works of New Music's greats. There is hardly a high-ranking avant-garde composer missing from the list: she has worked with Karlheinz Stockhausen, Mauricio Kagel, John Cage, Morton Feldman, Iannis Xenakis, Luciano Berio, and Christian Wolff. From the very beginning she was a sound innovator.

Now You Hear Me is invocative, making the presence of a condition felt, appropriating and relinquishing - everyday reality and ritual- now."-Intakt



"Much from the environment around us seems woven into these sounds and rhythms. Played with four hands and four feet, as well as two fully committed bodies, drums and percussion turn into a universal instrument with archaic roots and, at the same time, a resonator for the most contemporary vibes. The omnipotence and omnipresence of the rhythm. Heartbeat and pulse, the cycle of Nature, but also the world of processors and the fine crackling of circuits, the hum of data ways, street noise and lounge grooves, halted traffic and the free flight of birds, air vibrating in Manhattan and Berlin-Kreuzberg. By creating a world of its own out of these percussion particles, the music both reflects and intervenes. Immerse yourself in it and wondrous spaces open up in which reality starts merging with fantasy."-Bert Noglik, from the liner notes



"Unconstrained by conventional tonal and rhythmic paradigms, master musicians Joey Baron and Robyn Schulkowsky continue to explore the precise, noisy, and beautiful. The duo's past 15 years have included the release of the CD Dinosaur Dances, a residency at Grand Central Station NYC, along with performances and workshops in South America , the U.S., Europe, and China. The duo continues research in sonification with data psychologist Dr Nilam Ram (studio lab). Recent events include a world premiere performance in Merano, Italy playing the sculptures of artist Eduard Habicher. A double concerto by composer Christian Wolff is in the works for the future as well as the duo's second cd release Now You Hear Me."-Baron/Schulkowsky Duo Website
