PIANIST / COMPOSER / PRODUCER
NILS PETTER MOLVAER
WHO I AM
I live in Locarno, Switzerland, and I'm active as a pianist, composer, producer and teacher. I obtained my teaching degree at the École de Jazz et Musique Actuelle EJMA in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I studied with pianists Mauro Monti, Gaspard Glaus and Richie Beirach, among others. Growing up musically between French-speaking Switzerland and Ticino, my record debut as a leader took place in 2006 with the album "Improvviso", recorded with two former fellow students, bassist Cédric Gysler and drummer Roberto Titocci, released worldwide by the Swiss label TCB in Montreux.
WHAT I DO
My music seamlessly merges the sounds that I love most: Jazz, Classical and Contemporary Classical Music, Alternative Rock and Electronica. I had the opportunity to work with international, national and regional artists such as Olivier Ker Ourio, Tino Tracanna, Nils Wogram, Domenic Landolf, Reto Suhner, Max De Aloe, Yuri Goloubev, Taavo Remmel, Kadri Voorand, Brian Quinn, Roberto Pianca, Mauro Fiero, Max Pizio, Sandro Schneebeli and the BLUE 2147 and /q3/ collectives, among many others. For over 20 years I have been producing music and performing live in different projects from Jazz to electronic music. I have performed at international clubs and festivals in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, Finland, Estonia, Greece and Madagascar.
