Bastian Hagedorn is an experimental percussionist, drummer and composer. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from the Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences in Berlin and works as a touring musician as well as a multimedia artist. His work explores the potentials of unconventional musical styles such as noise, gabber, black metal and free improvisation as a form of artistic language, as well as the transcendent dimensions of the rhythmic. In his mostly collaborative installations and performances, he negotiates utopian and dystopian scenarios of current technological developments with regard to their effects on socio-cultural phenomena and everyday rituals. In his works, specific sound design and the use of elements of mechanical automation amplify the results of his reflections.
