Hannes Lingens

Hannes Lingens

Hannes Lingens is an improvisor/composer on drums and accordion. Born in Hamburg in 1980, he studied drums with Michael Griener and Guenter Baby Sommer in Dresden before moving to Berlin in 2006.
His interest in various forms of exploratory music gave him the opportunity to work with such diverse artists as Tetuzi Akiyama, Sven-Åke Johansson, Christof Kurzmann, Olaf Rupp or Matthias Schubert.
Ongoing collaborations include the groups OBLIQ, Hop Frog, Destination Out, Schulbus, as well as a duo with Pierre Borel (sax).
In 2009 he co-founded the collective Umlaut Berlin which curates an annual Festival for contemporary and experimental music and is part of the international label and network Umlaut Records.
Hannes Lingens has performed in internationally renowned festivals and venues throughout Europe, Japan, Israel and the USA.
