About Diamond Terrifier
Diamond Terrifier, or Sam Hillmer, is a musician, DJ, artist, curator and leader of the New York formation ZS. Diamond Terrifier is his solo project based on saxophone and electronic arrangements (ambient drone, world bass, sound system music and wind tradition playing outside of Western countries). Recently, Sam has expanded his performances to a group of musicians who function as Diamond Terrifier Cipher, most often collaborating with Miho Hatori (with Cibo Matto), Don Devore and Michael Beharie. His virtuoso control of the saxophone especially comes out during live performances. Hillmer uses it in a truly unique way, creating specific sounds and entire musical landscapes that you will not find even in the world of conventional free jazz.
