Improviser, composer, teacher and performer, Antonin Gerbal is associated with the vitality of the Parisian music scene, notably through Umlaut Records. He has performed in Europe, U.S., Russia and Japan, with many original projects such as Nakasanye, Zoor, ISM or Peeping Tom. Involved in large ensembles such as ONCEIM (playing pieces Eliane Radigue or Stephen O'Malley) and Umlaut Big Band (swing dancing band), Antonin Gerbal works regularly with English, German, Swiss and Japanese artists.

sample the album:
"Sound of Drums is made from skin, wood and metal. It is the result of a meticulous work questioning the unity of the drums by making each of its elements an unreal and archaic center. A deaf cracked harmony opens up mental spaces of innumerable possible sequences without real object. The past grabs the present in one single movement. It circles back."-Umlaut
