Percussion player

Gerrit Nulens was born in 1972. He studied classical percussion with Robert Van Sice at the Rotterdam Conservatory where he obtained a Master Degree. He is a laureate of the Kranichsteiner Musikpreis for the interpretation of Contemporary Music (Darmstadt). Besides being a regular member of Ictus he worked with Champ d’Action, Spectra, Ensemble Musikfabrik and the London Philharmonia Orchestra. As a soloist he premiered works by James Wood, François Sarhan and Robyn Schulkowski. Under the label PME he is publishing contemporary music with an emphasis on music with/for percussion. His specialisation in drum-set, improvisation and the integration of new media in live-performance has led to performances in various interdisciplinary contexts.
