Few drummers can make a standard drum set sound as colourful as René Creemers does. After having spent years on maximising his control over tempo, timing and the beat - essential elements for the rock drummer at heart that he used to be, and essentially still is - he set out to explore the dynamics, the sound, and the colours of his instrument. Glissandos on toms, echoes on woodblocks, reversed cymbal sounds, melodies on a single drum...
His style of playing is characterised by his strong feel for ambience and structure. It is always about the song, not about the notes. This focus is always noticeable, wheter you hear him play with a full-sized band, with the Drumbassadors, or as a drum soloist at the many Drummer Meetings and other festivals he has been attending. René teaches drums at the Arnhem Conservatory and the Tilburg Rock Academy.
