The Drum Whisperer
Vinsent Planjer has recently made his name as a very special percussionist. With a conception of his instruments that straddles the line between accompanying, shaping and soloing, he is widely praised for his sensitivity and ability to evoke tension and emotion in his playing. To give full scope to this aspect, Planjer has devised several formats, brought together under the collective name The Drum Whisperer. The title refers to Planjer’s ability to play whisper softly, but also to extract sounds from the instrumentation that listeners would not expect.
Over the past year, Planjer has started developing this through rehearsals and recordings, and the result will be released as an album in April 2024. The album will feature duets and trios with a variety of musicians from classical music and jazz, such as Liza Ferschtman, Teus Nobel, Remy van Kesteren.
