Biography

Mark Sanders has been a professional drummer for almost thirty years. His diversity is unmatched, running the gamut between jazz, free improvisation, pop, avant-rock, modern classical, dance, new complexity, dub and folk.
He’s one of the few free improvisers who integrates the learning that he accumulates from these broad activities: most improvising musicians’ approach rarely synthesises or overlaps their sets of experience from other styles.

You would be hard pressed to find musicians currently working within free improvisation who he hasn’t worked with: Mark has played with many renowned musicians from around the world including Evan Parker, Peter Brötzmann, Derek Bailey, Myra Melford, Paul Rogers, Henry Grimes, Roswell Rudd, Okkyung Lee, Barry Guy, Tim Berne, Otomo Yoshihide, Luc Ex, Ken Vandermark, Sidsel Endresen and Jean Francois Pauvrois, in duo and quartets with Wadada Leo Smith and trios with Charles Gayle with Sirone and William Parker.
New collaborative projects include `Riverloam Trio` with Mikolaj Trzaska & Olie Brice, `Asunder` with Hasse Poulsen & Paul Dunmall, duos with John Butcher and DJ Sniff, `Statics` with Georg Graewe & John Butcher and trio with Rachel Musson & Liam Noble
Mark and John Edwards play as a rhythm section with many groups including Trevor Watts Quartet, `Foils` with Frank Paul Schubert and Matthius Muller, Mathew Shipp`s `London Quartet` also playing with Fred Frith, Wadada Leo Smith and Shabaka Hutchins amongst many others.
