Cid Rim, also known as Clemens Bacher, is the acclaimed drummer, producer and composer based in London, hailing from Vienna.
His original film scores include Not Required Back, a short film by Pete Marsden premiered at the BFI London Film Festival and the road movie documentary Austria 2 Australia, produced by Josef Aichholzer who has won Best Foreign Language Film of the Year for his film “The Counterfeiters” in 2007. For the critically acclaimed film Fox In The Hole CID RIM has written a score for drums for the epic final clima of the film and in his music video for “ASDW” he used drum scores to give voice to a man sized hand puppet. He has written and licensed tracks for the Apple Airpod Max ad aswell as multiple Apple keynotes, Austrian energy companies and banks.
Bacher grew up in Austria where his friends and him led the city’s burgeoning art & music scene - fusing DIY jazz and electronics. With little regard for classification, their party was the stuff of legend. But after years incubating in Vienna, his ambition took him to writing rooms in LA, Paris & NY. A participant in Damon Albarn’s 'African Express', Clemens travelled to South Africa with Brian Eno & Idris Alba to collaborate with local musicians. Clemens has written, and released music with Petite Noir, Okmalumkoolkat, Denai Moore and Theophilus London. Not to mention official remixes for Sky Ferreira, 1975 and Chvrches (winning a Gilles Peterson Worldwide Award). Clemens moved to London to release his debut album ‘Material’. The album achieved BBC 6Music's ‘Album Of The Day’. On FM4, his A-List singles culminated in a live quintet performing with him in a beautiful 50s soundstage. At its essence ‘Material’ was about the intelligence one gains through practice - and while conducting his band from behind drums, Clemens proved a proficiency that’s rare today. Raised in the jazz tradition but obsessed with Autechre & CAN: creating a new bitches brew with Kraftwerk, Billy Cobham & The Beach Boys.
