Håkon Berre (b. 1980, Norway) has established himself as one of the most interesting drummers on the Danish scene for improvised music. Having expanded the drum set with a vast diversity of trash and objects, he juggles scrupulously with materials such as metal, plastic, paper, wood and expanded pylostyrene, occasionally incorporating real-time electronics. His inventive and energetic drumming has brought him to numerous clubs and festivals all around the world, and can be heard on a discography spanning 44 albums, many of them released on Barefoot Records, where Håkon is one of the co-founders. Håkon has composed and arranged music for theater performances and art exhibitions, and has exhibited several interactive sound installations at art museums in both Denmark and Germany. Håkon is active as a co-leader in numerous bands, both as a composer and as an improviser. Collaborations include artists such as Peter Brötzmann, Phil Minton, Axel Dörner, Peter Friis-Nielsen, John Tchicai, Jamie Branch, Liudas Mockunas, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Susana Santos Silva, Peter Evans, Akira Sakata and Otomo Yoshihide.
