Real Name:
Daniel Buess
Profile:
Daniel Buess was a drummer, percussionist and experimental musician born in Basel, Switzerland. Daniel was involved in various groups and Ensembles in the realm of experimental and improvised music, like “Ensemble Phœnix Basel” of which he is a core-member and solo-percussionist since its foundation in 1998, “CORTEX”, MIR,16-17”, HOW2, B&B. His collaborations include artists like Alex Buess, Hany Bedair, Daniel Stalder, Zbigniew Karkowski, Kasper T.Toeplitz, John Duncan, Jürg Henneberger, Michael Wertmüller, Phill Niblock, Julio Estrada, Christoph Bösch, Volker Heyn, Thomas Lauck, Tim Hodgkinson, Papiro, Michael Zaugg, Iancu Dumitrescu and many others.

At his regular tours through Europe, Asia and Australia, he performed at the most highly recognised festivals for experimental music as well as at several underground-places, off spaces and independent venues. In most of his own independent projects and performances which preferably happen at unusual places like car-workshops, Daniel makes an extensive use of his self-made percussion devices, built of different materials and electronics.

The artist passed away, found dead in the Rhine, one month after he went missing (7th february 2016).
