Claus Poulsen … has been part of the electronic and experimental scene in Copenhagen since the nineties. His music projects span across genres such as ambient, noise/drone and freejazz, often blending lo-fi and hi-fi elements and acoustic sounds with electronic.
Since the lockdown, the Zither has become the main focus, exploring new ways to play the instrument in combination with electronics and tools, often blending lo-fi and hi-fi elements and acoustic sounds with electronic.
CP works both as a solo artist and in a number of collaborations, both one-off and longer running projects: eardrops (with Sascha Stadlmeier), Blind Man’s Band (with Christian Rønn), duos with Nodolby, Dave Procter (A/K/A Legion of swine), and long running (but presently slowly working) Star Turbine, CAM and Small Things on Sundays.
CP is highly active releasing cassettes, CDs and vinyl (on labels such as Insula Jazz, Soundholes, Kornmod, Grisaille, Grubenwehr Freiburg, Krater Recordings, Nofigore, Invisible City, Chocolate Monk) and tours frequently in Denmark and Europe.

“This is absolutely gorgeous music, slow, peaceful, meandering and spacious.” Frans de Waard at Vital Weekly reviewing “Starry Womb“.
