Antonin Gerbal

© Matthieu Goury MAGOUKA

Drummer, pianist, improviser and composer, Antonin Gerbal is an active member of the Parisian music scene. His work questions in particular what makes the unity of the drum in the afro-american tradition – from the first swing orchestras to European improvisation, passing by bebop and free music. As a percussionist, he plays internationally and works with artists from all horizons (Alexander Von Schlippenbach, Eliane Radigue, Peter Ablinger, Evan Parker, Stephen O’Malley, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Seijiro Murayama or Axel Dörner). As a composer, he has written several pieces for the Umlaut Big Band and the Ensemble ReRe. His recent releases include his solo Sound of Drums, The Ring by the trio Denzler-Gerbal-Dörner, New Jazz Imagination and Supermajnoon by the quartet Ahmed (Pat Thomas, Seymour Wright, Joel Grip), Metaphor and Japanese Flower by the trio ISM (Pat Thomas, Joel Grip) and Occam Ocean 2 by ONCEIM. Antonin Gerbal is also producer for the labels Umlaut Records and Remote Resonator.
