C-drík (born Cedrik Fermont) is a multifaceted vegan artist, academically trained musician, dj, singer, composer and drummer. Of Greek, Zairian and Belgian descent, born in Congo (former Zaire), C-drík grew up in Belgium and also lived in the Netherlands. He is an eternal voyager, a ‘noise nomad’, a ‘musical archivist’. He started his first project in 1989 and juggles in between many projects and electronic genres. C-drík is a noted researcher on the history of experimental and extreme music in Africa and in Asia. In 2016, with sociologist and experimental musician Dimitri della Faille, he co-wrote a book on noise music in Southeast Asia – Not Your World Music –, for which they were awarded with the prestigious Golden Nica Prix Ars Electronica in the “Digital Musics and Sound Art“ category in 2017.
