Gil Schneider is a Swiss composer and producer based in Berlin. Their works are a tightly woven, non-linear yet soaring experiences of music’s potential to create new dance forms. Overlapping percussions, atmospheric sounds, dipping in and out of genres and timelines, GIL surprises the audience with their approach to movement. At times diverging far from traditional layouts, their musical output underlines a rich ability to experiment with context – notably, they have released two EPs on Danse Noire and three pieces for Piano Trio on Yegorka, composed a score for Akinola Davies’ BBC production Black to Life, performed a live concert and production at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, and released singles and remixes on PTP, Mixpak, and Staycore.
