Portrait of Theo Bleckmann

Theo Bleckmann

Grammy nominated, genre-bending vocalist and composer Theo Bleckmann has been a steady force in the music scene in New York for over 15 years.

Since his move from Germany to Manhattan in the late 1980s, Bleckmann has forged his own sound in jazz and contemporary music today, drawing from jazz, ambient and electronic music, often integrating extended vocal techniques as well as live electronic processing and looping. He has performed worldwide on some of the great stages and has worked with such artists as Laurie Anderson, Anthony Braxton, Steve Coleman, Dave Douglas, Philip Glass, Meredith Monk and John Zorn.
