André Vard in 120 bpm:
“The heartbeat is the first sound and rhythm that we perceive in our lives. Among other things, it signals our emotional state. This makes rhythms the oldest forms of communication in the world. Sounds are audible to us because of their vibrations and also noticeable through vibrations. In the interplay of the sense organs we see music and hear pictures. And everyone has their own sound of life. The very personal touch. Since we basically use universal physics when creating sound, it doesn’t matter whether a sound is acoustic or electronic in nature or whether we create a symbiosis of both. We can use the entire sound spectrum creatively and expand it innovatively. That’s what I always try to do in my musical work.”

Born on November 9th, André Vard knew early on that he would one day become a musician and above all a drummer. “I used to drum on cooking pots as a kid and I still create sounds with it today.” He played power chords on his first toy plastic guitar and then knocked out his uncle with it. That’s rock’n’roll! He later studied law, German literature, philosophy, cultural anthropology and European ethnology, but also attended all certified advanced programs at the Collective in New York during the semester breaks and is therefore a master class graduate in drums & percussion. With his former band KORONA, André Vard first rocked the big stages at Rock am Ring, Rock im Park, etc. and then landed many No. 1 hits in the web charts newly created by MTV.
