The multidisciplinary drummer and composer Katharina Ernst outshines everything you thought you knew about drums and percussion. Her brilliant debut album “Extrametric” combines abstract compositions with hypnotic polymetric patterns at an unsurpassed level. The complexity and density of Katharina Ernst’s music makes it almost unimaginable that she performs merely as a solo artist. Her setup combines her drums with various drum synthesizers, gongs, tam-tams, a multitude of small percussion instruments and the Malawian kalimba. The melodies and beats that emerge from this are absolutely striking for a single artist and, beat by beat, they are pushing the boundaries of what is humanly possible.
