Eric Thielemans (1969) is an Antwerp Jazz Studio alumnus and followed music lessons with Billy Hart. A passionate experimenter on drums and percussion, Thielemans is a member of a whole host of groups and ensembles, from dance and improvisation to Indonesian music. Thielemans isn’t a fan of the label ‘jazz drummer’. He played with Mâäk’s Spirit and the Ben Sluijs Quartet, is active as a member of the Jozef Dumoulin trio and his own ensemble EARR.
More than ever, Thielemans is focusing his attention on solo projects such as the much-lauded performance ‘A Snare is a Bell’. Thielemans investigates and maps out the qualities and properties of the phenomenon of ‘neutral space’, places that are perfectly empty and quiet.
