"Fredy Studer, drums/percussion

Fredy Studer was born on June 16, 1948, in Lucerne (Switzerland), where he also lives today. He is an autodidact. His music performances since the early seventies have been as eclectic as his freelance activities with musicians, ranging from "A", as in John Abercrombie, to "Z", as in John Zorn.

For the past 45 years, he has performed at festivals, given concerts and workshops, and recorded for radio and television, as well as music for dance productions and radio plays, theatre and film music in Europe, Africa, Japan, Central and South America, the Caribbean, in Taiwan, India, Russia and in Canada and the USA. He has been honoured with numerous prizes and awards.

Current groups and projects include: the hardcore chambermusic trio "Koch-Schütz-Studer" with Hans Koch and Martin Schütz (since 1990); "Phall Fatale" with Joy Frempong, Joana Aderi, John Edwards and Daniel Sailer; the Jimi Hendrix Project with Christy Doran, Erika Stucky and Jamaaladeen Tacuma; the revived legendary "OM" band with Christy Doran, Urs Leimgruber and Bobby Burri; the trio with Katharina Weber and Fred Frith; the band "Urumchi" with Saadet Türköz, Hans Hassler and Alfred Zimmerlin; and the percussion trio with Robyn Schulkowsky and Joey Baron. Studer also works as a freelance drummer and performs a limited number of select solo concerts.

Fredy Studer was one of the first drummers to incorporate open improvisation and grooves into his style. The specialist journal "Drums & Percussion" wrote: "... without doubt, Swiss percussionist Fredy Studer is one of the most innovative drummers in Europe..."

Fredy Studer's works and collaboration has been documented on more than 90 recordings."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

Koch-Schütz-Studers new release "Tales from 30 Unintentional Nights" is a collection of live recordings made during the 30 days performance in Zurich last year. "Thirty days, two sets every evening, always at the same time, always in the same place. In the laboratory atmosphere, black with age, of the Alte Schlosserei 12 [Old Locksmith's Shop] on Pfingstweidstrasse in Zurich, three researchers, tinkerers, lab techs of sounds, Koch-Schütz-Studer, are at work in the middle of a jungle that generates patterns of light. They play with their ingredients, experimenting and letting me get close enough to partake in how they cast spells and invent music, connecting yesterday through today with tomorrow, the very reason each concert is the best, each evening, each set different, coming out of nothing. [...] The laboratory in the Schlosserei expands, a radiating cathedral of sound, a freighter that cannot be localized by any radar as it vibrates and rolls through a churned-up sea, all sails set for a journey into the unknown."-Reto Hänny, from the liner notes
