Vladimir Tarasov


Photo: Mikhail Rashkovsky

A world-famous drummer, resourceful percussionist, composer and visual artist, Vladimir Tarasov is equally at home with many musical styles. But his true affection lies with free jazz and improvised music. His masterly strokes make percussion instruments sound like an orchestra, let alone some unconventional objects, from which he elicits most unexpected sonorities. Together with the members of the GTCh Trio, he laid the foundations of Lithuanian jazz school and partnered many of the world's improvised music celebrities. He was one of the first in Europe to present solo programs for drums and percussion. He is regarded as a conceptual artist whose ideas find their way in various media: he composes for theatre and film, creates visual art and intermedia works, presents performances and installations, collaborates with various artists, including writers, painters and dancers.
