Anders Bach is a musician and writer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. He explores acoustic intimacy and digital mania in his music. Through malleable synthetic textures and an unruly pulse, Anders’ aesthetics are either slow in motion or hyperactive. There’s no in between. Anders has been an active figure on the Danish experimental and indie music scenes the past eight years both as a solo-performer and as a member of many influential groups, his distinct symbiosis of drums and electronics at the center of his career. As a result he has been nominated for several awards, including Musician of the Year at the Danish Music Critics Choice Awards (Steppeulven) in 2019 and Experimental Album of the Year at the Danish Jazz Music Awards in 2020.

In his solo-work, Anders bridges his love for deconstructed ambience and frenetic melodics. In ensembles, Anders is primarily known for his work as a composer in and founder of bands like Ice Cream Cathedral, Erna and HEX and as a musician and creative force with acts like Bisse, Sleep Party People, Luster and Jada. In both capacities, Anders has toured most of Europe and numerous states and countries in North America and Asia. Furthermore, Anders is the co-founder of the Danish underground label Wetwear: an intuitive platform for releasing music, a listener-invite to participate in an alternative archiving of the artistic process.

Anders is a published scholar and holds undergrad and graduate degrees respectively from the Rhythmic Music Conservatory and the IT University in Copenhagen, DK.

He has presented his research on improvisation, aesthetics and artificial intelligence since 2016 at conferences in USA, China, Germany and South Korea. His latest contribution to the field was a commisioned chapter about musical reproduction in the book “The Bloomsbury Handbook of the Anthropology of Sound”, published by Bloomsbury in december 2020. Anders was furthermore among the paper reviewers and presenters at the International Computer Music Festival in 2019 in NYC.
