about

Vincent Glanzmann is a sound artist and drummer based in Zürich Switzerland. The open nature of his work as both a performer and composer has led him to a multitude of collaborations with a broad spectrum of artists within contemporary music, visual arts, dance, fashion and literature. There is a curiosity and playfulness that distinguishes his concepts and contributions to the progressive music and sound art scene. His ceaseless creative energy and communicative way of playing often includes unique preparations and alternative techniques, which are flexible enough to find a home in many performance disciplines.

Having been inspired by the artistic output of the dance choreographer Sasha Waltz from Berlin, Vincent created and produced SZSHH, his third solo percussion release as an homage to the artist. SZSHH could be thought of as an abstract form of dance music.

Different than Glanzmann's former release, Z/Rzw-Shiiiiiii, which consisted mostly of abstract, soundophile structures, the complex sonic terrain of SZSHH offers a joyous compositional interplay of distantly familiar rhythms and unexpected percussion sounds.

Starting June 10th we release a series of successive short singles with artwork based graphic videos for each track on the SZSHH album.

The album is presented on 2 September at De Perifeer in Kunstenlab (Deventer, NL), with live performances by Vincent Glanzmann, Julian Sartorius and Tresque and an exhibition by Maaike Folmer: perifeer.org/agenda/vincent-glanzmann-julian-sartorius-tresque-maaike-folmer/

Review by Alain Dupeux at Radio Rec:
"Avec cette suite de du précédent album Vincent Glanzmann continu son travail asur l’évolution des corps à travers ce projet sur la danse Sasha Waltz de Berlin avec une nouvelle approche à travers ce troisiéme album ou l’orignalité l’improvisation génére une série de structures abtraites avec ses emblémathiques instrumentations. Toujours dans cette recherche permamente qui brouille les pistes une fois plus avec ses changements climatiques dût à cette création artistique ouvre des textures musicales insolites qui mélange les ryhtmes et les percussions par un processu qui régule la vitesse et les formes et ses courants musicaux par cette audace et cette générosité sonore. Cette liberté laisse court à son instinct son improvisation avec cet esprit décalé qui utilise toutes les combinaisons pour atteindre une débordante créativité par ses mouvements ou l’acoustique des sons renforce cette alternance des harmonies. J’ai adoré ses folles versions d’un artiste libre et créatif."

Review by Mario Ariano in Radioaktiv:
"Vincent Glanzmann è un batterista e sound artist svizzero noto per il suo approccio giocoso nei confronti della materia sonora e per il forte interesse per le percussioni. Nonostante la sua impronta jazz, la sua attitudine l’ha portato a collaborare con artisti nell’ambito della musica contemporanea, delle arti visive, della danza, della moda e della letteratura.

L’esperienza maturata e le collaborazioni interdisciplinari hanno contribuito a sviluppare un linguaggio musicale personale e intimo. Rilasciato il 2 settembre 2022 via Esc.rec., SZSHH è la sua terza pubblicazione per sole percussioni ispirata dalla produzione artistica della coreografa di Berlino Sasha Waltz.
Cinque tracce che potrebbero essere pensate come una forma astratta di musica dance, nelle quali i ritmi e i suoni di percussioni interagiscono per formare composizioni frizzanti e inaspettate.

Sfregamenti, crepitii e clangori mettono in scena uno spettacolo sonoro travalicando i linguaggi canonici delle percussioni: i brani indagano le possibilità timbriche delle percussioni combinando gli strumenti in modo da creare geometrie lineari e ripetitive.

Un suono complesso che lascia trapelare la naturale bellezza delle percussioni a partire dalla prima traccia. S_SZZ è un gioco tra timbriche metalliche e altre acustiche: rintocchi di piatti, sfregamenti sulle pelli e colpi su oggetti comuni vengono manipolati estrapolando il lato vibrante della ritmica.
Una sequenza melodica ridotta all’osso combinata ad un sapiente uso delle dinamiche vanno a costituire la vivida narrazione di _H_A_. La seconda traccia cresce d’intensità mostrandosi lentamente come un primitivo brano techno. Ascoltando__AS si ha la sensazione che il nostro riproponga i classici stop’n’go della techno ma in ambito elettroacustico, elaborando un brano semplice ed essenziale in grado di coinvolgere grazie al ritmo incessante.

SZSHH è un disco difficile, una formula atipica quella proposta da Vincent Glanzmann che indaga il suono delle percussioni mettendolo a nudo in un concentrato anomalo di progressioni e grovigli ritmici."
