Robert Kainar

Robert Kainar (born 1965) studied at University Mozarteum in Salzburg and Musikhochschule Graz and is now one of the most wanted drummers of the Austrian music scene. His work with artists like Otto Lechner, The Tiptons, k3, k3 goes India, Ranajit Sengupta, David Gazarov, dreamhunter, Lisa Wahlandt and many others has made him well known all over the globe. Beyond his work as a sideman, Robert is doing a Solo program based on a fusion of acoustically and electronically generated beats and sounds, all produced live and in the moment. He works with acoustic instruments (percussion, toys, trombone,…) and also with electronic sounds and loops. Robert’s own - 2009 founded - Label “sowiesound”, is giving a comprehensive reflection of his recent work. His style oscillates between jazz, club beats, trance, noise and drum and bass, creating a space for improvisation and artistic freedom.
