Gilbert Paeffgen

I was born in 1958 in Würzburg, Germany, and now live in Switzerland.
The instruments I play are the drums, an assortment of different percussion instruments, the hammered dulcimer and the bodhran.
The hammered dulcimer is also called "Appenzeller Hackbrett". The bodhran is an Irish framedrum, well-known for its unique percussion sound.
Assorted Percussions: I love to find different sounds on the drums and next to the drums and to integrate them into the musical process.
Both my interest and my taste are not fixed on one certain specific type or style of music.
Actually already at the beginning of my career I started immediately a journey, where I seek my musical identity: I always felt extremely attracted to, and inspired by, various kinds of Ethnic Music, thereby especially African and Celtic Music. In different groups and projects, with different musicians and artists from different angles I combine these ethnic influences with rock, avantgarde and jazz.
I released music with Irish Uillean pipes or an Irish singer as well as I recorded music from French classical composer Gabriel Faure.

I perform and record with a jazz-piano trio as well as I am asked as soloist for a classical orchestra work, as backup for a French singer which sings in Patois ( old swiss-french dialect ) or as studio- or freelancemusician.
Beyond that I am active as composer and conceptor.
I work and worked with: Georgios Antoniou, Pierre Audetat, Teddy Bärlocher, Christoph Baumann, Marcel Bernasconi, Marc Bertaux, Michel Besson, Nilo Bortot, Antonio Breschi, Chicken Chee, Fee Claasen, Lindsay Cooper, Mike Del Ferro, Paolo Fresu, Chlöisu Friedli, Mich Gerber, CharlieGreen, Howard Griffiths, Shirley Grimes, Taffaneyi David Gweshe, Tini Hägler, Glen Hahn, Werner Hasler, Tinu Heiniger, Barbara Hendricks, Ben Herman, Joe Mc Hugh, Sylvia de Hartog, Thomi Jordi, Sylvia Jost, Vera Kappeler, Herbi Kopf, Oli Kuster, Philipp Läng, Urs Leimgruber, Patrick Lerjen, Don Li, Urban Lienert, Woody Man, Michael Moore, Patrice Moret, Bänz Oester, Daniel Ott, Jaqueline Ott, Tony Overwater, Oyeah, Alexander Paeffgen, Hans Peter Pfammatter, Roland Philipp, Die Regierung, Laurence Revey, Stephanie Riondel, Brigitte Schär, Daniel Schläppi, Christian Schmid, Urs Peter Schneider, Ramesh Shotham, Marco Siero, Jeff Sicard, Laszlo Spiro, Christoph Stiefel, Signorino TJ, Daniel Spahni, Jonas Tauber, Töbi Tobler, Eric Vloeimans, Nicolas Thys, Vinz Vonlanthen, Peter Waters, Christian Wolfarth, Wege Wüthrich, Matthias Ziegler.
