Henrik Schwarz: Bio

Hailing from the southern part of Germany, Bodensee, Henrik Schwarz is a long time veteran in the German deep house scene. Djing was his first love, having built a reputation at major events in the early nineties. But a desire to breach musical and technological boundaries pushed Henrik into production and soon his live laptop sessions were born. Today he takes his live sets and nine years of production experience to crowds worldwide. His twelve's are gaining massive support from the likes of Jazzanova, Gilles Peterson and Sonar Kollectiv.

Full of groove – without any beats: Henrik Schwarz‘s music in an acoustic arrangement for chamber orchestra

"What's left of my music if I have it played by Classical musicians and omit the most important element, the beats'" This question was the starting point for INSTRUMENTS, the new Henrik Schwarz album. Four years have passed now since the Berlin musician and producer was first invited to have a selection of his House tracks played by an orchestra. Now the Tokyo Secret Orchestra has recorded seven pieces arranged for chamber orchestra that are reminiscent of the minimalism of Steve Reich and Michael Nyman not least in their poetry and magnetic pull. In between times, a piece like "In Björndal" with its shimmering instrumental colours even takes us back to the fin de siècle and the music of Schönberg.
