MOTHERDRUM is an instrumental collective founded by Austrian drummer and producer Alexander Yannilos.
Instead of a fixed lineup, MD gathers progressive musicians in different combinations around Yannilos´s hybrid drumset. Instead of reciting a set repertoire, it unleashes [con]temporary explosions of sound, burning genre-borders to the ground. Tracks are created on the fly, no rehearsal, no setlist, no undo. The result is a sizzling mix of morphing styles, that can move from Avantgarde Jazz to Broken Beat, grimy HipHop or Industrial Techno within just a couple of bars. Hard to put your finger on, easy to move your feet to.
MOTHERDRUM:MODULAR´s unique line-up features Yannilos´s electro-acoustic drumset [a mix of drum-synthesizers, effects and acoustic drums and cymbals] triggering [electronic music legend] Patrick Pulsingers sophisticated modular synthesizer, unlocking a new level of electronic interplay.
