Michael Griener (drums)

Born in Nuremberg, Germany in 1968, began playing drums in 1982, lives in Berlin since 1994. Under the influence of the HOHE-UFER-concerts initiated by Günter Christmann he became involved early on in the various forms of Jazztradition, Free Improvisation and New Music, which led to a longer collaboration with Christmann in his Vario-projects (a.o. C.I.M.-Festival Den Haag 1990, Moers-Festival 1992, Wittener Tage für Neue Kammermusik1993, Interplay FMP 2006).

„M.G.moved from Nürnberg to Berlin some years ago and is since then one of the most demanded drummers for all cases. Played with traditional heroes like Herb Ellis, radical players like Barry Guy, stars of the Berlin scene like Axel Dörner or sound explorers like Zeena Parkins. He proofed to be the perfect player for all opportunities, as he understands to play the most special idea in his very own way finding the right balance between his own play and the given context. His self-taught style merging flow and fragility is unique as well as his coolness.”
