Robin Fincker is so clearly inhabited by his music that is grabs us physically. One has the impression of hearing his actual voice as opposed to the sound of his instrument.
French saxophonist and clarinettist Robin Fincker (7/7/1980) is a prominent figure of the
European creative-music scene. He has been described as an “ultra-virtuoso from whom
each following wave instills the impression of creation” (Liberation) and has developed an
instantly recognisable sound enthused with stylistic freedom through mixing improvised-
music, jazz, traditional folk-music, rock and electronic music.
Having lived in London between 1997 and 2009, his musical collaborations show an insatiable appetite for building sonic bridges and collisions. He has played with a wide range of key bands and musical-figures of his time including Vincent Courtois, Benoit Delbecq, Hilmar Jensson, Daniel Erdmann, Julien Desprez, John Parish, Pierre-Alexandre Tremblay, Aquaserge, Bill Frisell, Pascal Niggenkemper, John Greaves, Evan Parker, Kit Downes, Paul Rogers, Surnatural Orchestra and the Orchestre National de Jazz amongst many others.
