I am a Hungarian, Budapest based drummer and viola player. I work with several music groups in the field of free improvised, contemporary, electronic, jazz and folk music, as well as creating music for contemporary dance & theater pieces. As a kid I learned on a special type of viola with 3-strings from gypsys in Transylvania, and later took jazz drum lessons from different hungarian masters. I studied cultural anthropology at ELTE, Budapest.

As a drummer I’m interested in a type of improvisation which is above genres and forms, and relying only on the present situation. I’m also experimenting with the possible connections between different approaches of improvisation found in folk music and jazz. I’m developing a non metrical special way of rubato playing on drums which is mainly comes from my folk music experiences as a viola player, but also mixed with the traditions of free-jazz.

I played improvised concerts with Clayton Thomas, Hilary Jeffery; Akosh S., Mihály Dresch, István Grencsó, Vitor Rua, Andreas Backer, Dávid Somló, Lawrence Williams, Zlatko Baracskai but also collaborated with bands like Wovenhand, Deti Picasso, Muzsikás, Volkova Sisters.

As a performer I’ve been invited for festivals such as Ring Ring (SRB); Ljubljana Jazz Festival; Festival Les Vieilles Charrues; Dour Festival, Belgium; ICAS SUITE, Berlin; Next Festival, Bratislava; UH Festival, Hu; Ars Nova Kosice, Sziget Festival, Hu.

I work constantly with internationally well knowned choreographers and dancers like Máté Mészáros (Ultima Vez); Imre Vass (ex-Ultima Vez); Csaba Molnár (Hodworks); Viktória Dányi (Bloom!). In a collaborative work with the dancers i made music for several pieces of them and performed in festivals like New Dance Festival, Beijing; 8th Gdansk Dance Festival; Abrons Art Center, NYC; Impulstanz, Vienna; Aerowaves Spring Forward, Umeo; Julidans Festival, Amsterdam.
