Michael Wertmuller: "Born in 1966 in Thun (Switzerland), the composer and drummer completed his studies at the Swiss Jazz School, at the Bern University of the Arts and at the Sweelinck-Konservatorium Amsterdam. From 1995 to 1999 he was a student of Dieter Schnebel at the Berlin University of the Arts. Wertmüller was a member of the Berner Sinfonieorchester as well as a guest at the Concertgebouw Orkest Amsterdam. He played in addition to his solo concerts with various chamber music ensembles and was involved in numerous radio recordings and world premieres.
His works will be performed at the Donaueschinger Musiktage, MaerzMusik Berlin, the Lucerne Festival, musica viva München, the Ultraschall Festival of the Akademie der Künste Berlin, the Biennale Tel Aviv, the JazzFest Berlin, Wien Modern, the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival or the London Jazz Festival listed. Wertmüller composed for Christoph Schlingensief as well as the Cologne Theater, the Schauspiel Stuttgart and the Schauspielhaus Zürich. The opera "Anschlag" (Libretto Lukas Bärfuss) premiered in 2013 at the Lucerne Festival, the opera "Do not cry, sing" (Libretto Dea Loher) 2015 at the Hamburg State Opera. The comic opera "Valentin" with director Herbert Fritsch was premiered at the Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg in 2017.
For the past 25 years, he has toured hundreds of concerts with the band Alboth, the trio Full Blast (together with Peter Brötzmann and Marino Pliakas) and various other combinations around the world for tours and festivals. He combines collaboration in various contexts with authors such as Dea Loher, Peter Weber, Monika Rinck, Michael Lentz, Reinhard Jirgl, Lukas Bärfuss or Wolfgang Hilbig.

sample the album:
"After the internationally and heavily praised Caspar BrÃ¶tzmann Massaker in the early '90s, not much was heard from the German "Modern Primitive" guitar player Caspar BrÃ¶tzmann, aside from some collaborations for theater. Now he is back with a new band -- extreme, heavy, intense. In summer 2012 he was invited by the A L'arme Festival for a special gig with Swiss musicians Michael WertmÃ¼ller (drums) and Marino Pliakas (ebass) (those two form the group Full Blast with Caspar's father and free-jazz legend Peter BrÃ¶tzmann). The show went so well that they decided to continue doing music together, record an album and tour. In spring 2013, Nohome played some gigs in Russia and the Moers Festival. Improvised music, noise, guitar walls, industrial, and jazz meet and get a performative enhancement through special guest FM Einheit (ex-EinstÃ¼rzende Neubauten) on two pieces."-TrostAlso available on CD.
