Sven Kosakowski – Drums
Sven Kosakowski is a professional musician from Dortmund, Germany, who does his work with passion.
He devoted his body and soul to his inner calling: playing drums.
Despite being self-taught, Sven continually honed his skills in many private lessons, master classes and workshops. He learned from world-class players such as Claus Hessler, Steve Smith, Dave Weckl, Jojo Mayer, Simon Phillips, Prof. Michael Küttner and Peter Wrba, for instance.
He has played drums for various groups and artists in radio and television shows as well as in hundreds of concerts all over Europe.
Sven has had the opportunity to work with internationally renowned artists like Tomas Fronza, Dian Pratiwi, Paddy Kelly, Sascha Salvati, Tialda van Slogteren, Mehmet Kasimay, Analogue Birds, Jorge Rodrigues, Angelo Kelly and Dirk Schulz, also playing more exotic musical genres like arabian and brazilian music.
Meanwhile, studio sessions as a drummer and percussionist for various artists have become part of his resume, as well as the job in the director’s chair. He works as a producer, arranger and mixing engineer in and outside of his own project studio.
Sven’s trademark is his creative way of playing drums, especially the use of innovative sounds and outstanding individual style of play.
Transforming the sounds and the musicality of electronic music into a live concept is just one of his talents.
