Tobias Vethake / Sicker Man

Tobias Vethake started composing and arranging music for film and television during his studies at the Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media: e.g. Muxmäuschenstill, Russendisko, Bye Bye Berlusconi, Reise nach Jerusalem; He composed and performed his first score under the name of his soloproject Sicker Man for the American/Canadian production Seance directed by Simon Barrett.
Since 2005 he has also been composing music for theatres, performance art, installations and radio plays: e.g. Schauspielhaus Hamburg, Volkstheater Wien, Deutsches Theater Berlin, WDR, Deutschlandradio Kultur, Teatrul Național Sibiu, Imperial War Museum London; Besides releasing albums of his own various musical projects like the electronic-jazz duo Mini Pops Junior on his label blankrecords (est. 2003), he also provides a platform for new, not yet established artists such as the experimental soundcollective Bohemian Drips. His solo-project Sicker Man is the focal point of his artistic creation. Here he transfers his musical visions into reality, combining classical songwriting with sonic soundscapes. His main instrument is the electric cello. He has been collaborating with artists from all over the world, and is the producer and co-writer of various international releases: e.g. Serengeti (US), João Orecchia (RSA), Machine est mon Coer (AUS/FR), Trialogos (IT/GER);
In response to the altered living and working conditions during the pandemic Sicker Man and Kiki Bohemia started the daily series of livestream concerts Cleansing Drones For Locked Down Homes in March 2020. With Fragments Of Futures Past Sicker Man pursued the daily livestream concert routine during the summer and created 70 electroacoustic instant compositions for solo electric cello.
He developed this idea with his latest project „Fleeting Places“, in which he recorded and filmed himself performing music at unusual places.
