Musician

Frank Rosaly

Born:

Frank Rosaly is a Puerto Rican drummer, composer and sound designer living in Amsterdam. His musical approach stems from an exhaustive study of Jazz, classical percussion, Improvisation, as well as classical composition and post-classical techniques such as musique concrète, graphic notation and chance operation. This information is filtered through the prism of the Unknown, Metaphysics, ancient history, rituals and folklore of Latin America and the Caribbean. His journey in sound is a study, his musical contributions are offerings. He contributes much of his time beyond performing and composing to organizing musical events and co-founding Molk Factory, a record label and performance space, while touring regularly internationally. After 15 years of musical exploration and development with over 50 musical projects in Chicago from 2001-2016, Frank moved to Amsterdam to further develop his musical approach in a new environment including the worlds of intermediality, sound installation, electronic music synthesis and Dutch musiek theater while also improvising and performing in creative music ensembles. Past performance collaborations include Fennesz, Terrie Ex, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, Andy Moor, Avreeayl Ra, David Daniell, Rhys Chatham, Tony Conrad, Bobby Bradford, Joan of Arc, Frode Gjerstad, Matana Roberts, Jeff Parker, Thurston Moore, Peter Brotzmann, Tony Malaby, Roscoe Mitchell, Anthony Coleman, Tony Conrad, Paul Flaherty, Marshall Allen, Louis Moholo, Nels Cline, Eric Boeren, Ken Vandermark, Michael Zerang, Walter Weirbos, White/Light, Doug McCombs, Michael Attias, Michael Moore, Tim Stine and Dave Rempis among many others. As an improviser, Frank is currently active in many projects from Chicago, New York and in Europe

Read "Sunday At De Ruimte" reviewed by Mark Corroto
