With his rhythms pushing the boundaries of new music, hip-hop and a unique form of abstract electronica, Sartorius reveals the endless possibilities and range of his instruments. He often prepares his drums, works with unusual, unprocessed acoustic sounds and develops beat by beat, a sound world previously unheard.

He has collaborated with Matthew Herbert, Shahzad Ismaily, Sylvie Courvoisier, Merz, Dimlite, Fred Frith, Sophie Hunger, Rhys Chatham and many others, and has toured throughout Europe, South America, Canada, Japan and the US. With his solo show he has played on bills with the likes of Deerhoof, Faust, Marc Ribot, Jaki Liebezeit, Arto Lindsay, and has released several solo albums, including the 12-LP-Box set «Beat Diary», consisting of 365 beats and a companion photo book. His video installation «Schläft ein Lied in allen Dingen» was shown in several art galleries.
