SWIMS is the exploration between acoustic improvisation and functional dance music

Arthur Hnatek, virtuoso drummer, is a contemporary Swiss musician who constantly reinvents himself. Active as a producer and electronic musician, his solo project explores the boundaries between improvisation and functional club music with drums and modular synths.

Recently, he released two EPs (SWIMS – 2020, Why So Much Hope – 2022) and a collaboration with Taut (Jojo Mayer) with whom he released Ritual and then Polychroma. His music is supported by BBC Radio 6 and was named “Best Swiss Electronic Track” by SRF3.

The musician known for having travelled the world alongside many prestigious acts delivers his first solo project navigating between electronica beats and complex textures evocative of the Warp records legacy.

Mit diesem Konzert heissen wir Arthur Hnatek offiziell im Mehrspur und als neuer Dozierender für Jazz-Drums an der ZHdK willkommen.
