Background and activities

Carl Haakon Waadeland (b.1952):

Drummer and percussion player; professor of music performance, with special focus on jazz and music technology; PhD in music with the thesis "Rhythmic Movements and Moveable Rhythms – Syntheses of Expressive Timing by Means of Rhythmic Frequency Modulation" (NTNU, 2000); Master´s degree in mathematics (University of Trondheim, 1977).

Head of the Programme in music technology, NTNU, 2003-2011; head of Section of jazz education, Department of music, NTNU, 2006-2007.

Teaches drum set, rhythm and music technology. Supervisor of PhD students and fellows in the Norwegian Artistic Research Fellowship Programme. Involved in several research projects related to empirical investigations of rhythm performance, with a special focus on relations between rhythm and movement and connections between timing and sound. Has also interest in models synthesizing rhythm performance. Is, moreover, engaged in an artistic research project based on music technology: T-EMP: Trondheim Electroacoustic Music Performance.

Has participated on a large variety of recordings and tours with artists and bands like T-EMP, Dadafon, Anne-Lise Berntsen, Trygve Brøske, Andreas Aase, Rasmus og Verdens Beste Band, Hulder Bulder, Siris Svale Band, Åge Aleksandersen & Sambandet, Halvdan Sivertsen, Terje Tysland, Warne Marsh, Kenny Wheeler, Gary Holton & Casino Steel, Annbjørg Lien, Henning Sommerro, Bjørn Alterhaug, John Pål Inderberg, Knutsen & Ludvigsen, Mikis Theodorakis and Arja Saijonmaa.
