thomas ankersmit is a 30+ year old saxophonist, electronic musician and installation artist born and raised in the netherlands and now primarily based in berlin who combines abstract, intensely focused saxophone playing with hyper-kinetic analogue synth and computer improvisation. he also creates installation pieces that use sound, infrasound and "modifications to the acoustic characters of spaces" that disrupt the viewer/listener's perception of the exhibition space and their presence within it. he frequently works together with new york minimalist phill niblock and sicilian electroacoustic improviser valerio tricoli, and other collaborators, mostly for live performances, have included tony conrad, maryanne amacher, jim o'rourke, kevin drumm and borbetomagus.
