MARLIES DEBACKER

biography

Marlies Debacker is a Belgian pianist and performer of free improvised music, free jazz as well as contemporary classical music based in Cologne.

 

She does extensive research on the sound possibilities of her instrument with a focus on resonance, pedal work, inside piano playing and the use of various preparations,

thus allowing her to move between the conventional sound of a piano and various percussive and pseudo-electronic sounds.

Apart from playing the piano she often performs on vintage keyboards as well.

 

After finishing a master degree in Improvisation at the HfMT Cologne under Professor Paulo Alvares, she is currently studying a master in New Music at the

Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen.

 

in the Atelier Dürrenfeld/Geitel – a platform for improvised and contemporary music.

 

Besides her work as a performing pianist, Debacker is also a piano teacher at the Offene Jazzhaus Schule in Cologne.
