Nikolaus Neuser is a German jazz trumpeter, improviser and composer, who studied at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen with Uli Beckerhoff and lives in Berlin.

His main interest lies in the border areas between jazz, free improvisation, contemporary music and trans-disciplinary projects.

In addition to his own projects such as his quintet, the duo noiserkroiser and the collaborative trio I Am Three, Nikolaus Neuser currently works with Silke Eberhard, Kevin Shea, Matt Mottel, Matana Roberts, Andreas Willers among others.

He can be heard on over 70 CDs and records, as well as numerous radio productions, including recordings that have been awarded the “Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik” or the “ECHO”.

He has played with Matthew Herbert, Tyshawn Sorey, Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky, Herb Geller, Benny Bailey among others, and has toured on behalf of the Goethe Institute in Asia, the USA, Europe as well as in Colombia, where he taught as a guest professor in Bogotá.
Nikolaus Neuser was artist in residence at Zico House Beirut, Lebanon, fellow of Art OMI music, Ghent, NY, USA, and most recently artist in residence at Villa Waldberta at Lake Starnberg.

“Nikolaus Neuser’s music is based on contemporary avant-garde jazz which is frequently related to modern jazz and contemporary academical music. Drive, expression, stunning experiments, research of strange tunes, expansion of technical abilities bring huge range of colors to his improvisations.”
