I Fondatori/the Founders

Hilary Binder’s musical career began when she was six years old learning to play violin and piano. She began her musical career at 6, studying classical violin and piano. Frustrated with the confines of classical music, she began to teach herself drumming at 15 and formed her first punk group, Death Before School, in 1981. After moving to San Francisco, she eventually hooked up with Christopher and Tommy and continued drumming. With the formation of SABOT came an opportunity to expand on the traditional drumming styles of her past groups. Hilary’s musical influences started with her classical musical training, which continues to affect her ideas about composition. For ten years she almost exclusively listened to punk and hardcore music, though she is always sneaking in private time with soul, go-go and hip hop. Hilary Binder was the founder of, and for twenty years an administrator at the international cultural center CESTA. Currently she is the drummer in RIOT, the lead singer of POLEMICA, and a member of the vocal quartet KAČKALA. She is also the founder and administrator at the international cultural laboratory INVIZIN.

Her ability to see the genius in others and give them permission to step into it, combined with a seamless blend of intuition and logic are the force that is ushering more authentic, full-bodied creativity into the world. Lit up by marketing as much as art making, her coaching programs are changing the limiting beliefs and starving artist paradigms that hold so many artists back.
