Haas, Christoph - Schlagwerk

Christoph Haas Christoph Haas

Christoph Haas

After having grown up with European classical music, Christoph Haas studied in West Africa, Latin America and South India, where he took frame drum classes with Glen Velez (USA), Samir Essahbi (Morocco) as well as T.R. Sundaresan and P. Nandakumar (India).
Applying traditional and innovative playing techniques to a wide range of instruments, he creates multifaceted and brillant sounds. His compositions bridge the gap between orient and occident, between old and new music. They are characterized by complex polirhythmic structures, many times in odd meters, and his differentiated approach to the use of tone colors and overtones.
