"Théo Zipper, a master of the four strings" - Jazzism (Netherlands)


Musician, bassist and composer, Théo Zipper is a multi-faceted artist. Raised by an artistic family, shape and movement have always been a fascination and a guideline in his musical explorations.

The bass player participates in several innovative and eclectic projects, from jazz to world and electronic music.

He's the founder of the underground Brussels-based collective of improvised music Collectif Thöz, and the bass player of the critically acclaimed band Aleph Quintet (Igloo Records). He can also be heard alongside KLLAP a duet with long time collaborator trumpeter Aristide d'Agostino, exploring the connection between free jazz and cinema. He also gives bass and electronic solo performances, sometimes joined by painters, actors or dancers. 

Théo frequently tours Belgium and the rest of the world, playing in France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Morocco, Tunisia and Jordan.
