Thomas Ankersmit

Musician Thomas Ankersmit was born in 1979 in Leiden, Netherlands and divides his time between Amsterdam and Berlin. In addition to his activities as an interpreter, he has also made a name for himself with a series of installations. His main instruments are analogue synthesizers, computers and the alto saxophone. He frequently works together with New York-based minimalist Phill Niblock and electroacoustic artists Valerio Tricoli and Kevin Drumm. His music projects and live performances take on a lively character and are marked by surprising turns and structural and conceptual stringency. Critics are particularly impressed by the balance between chaos and control in Ankersmit’s music. A series of CD recordings document Ankersmit’s always astonishing works.
