Alexander Dowerk

Alexander Dowerk is performing with Anchor & Burden at the MoonJune Festival Toledo on September 29, 2023.

Alexander Dowerk, born in Kaiserslautern,  is a music producer, composer and touch guitarist from Germany. The Berlin-based musician combines the sound and energy of modern, progressive metal with the compositorial depth of contemporary classical music. The result is a complex and powerful interplay of body and mind. The U8 Touch Guitar is Alexander’s weapon of choice in mastering guitar and bass parts alike. Besides using traditional techniques such as strumming and plucking, Alexander often uses touchstyle-playing to create musical parts that wouldn’t be possible to play on other string instruments. His works display a strong sense of detail and groove with complex rhythmical structures that are often created by layering multiple polyrhythms upon each other. Alexander Dowerk regularly collaborates with local and international musicians. His playing can be heard on several releases of the Unsung Productions and King Crimson surrounding.
