Isabelle Duthoit (F) – clarinet, voice
Franz Hautzinger (A) – trumpet
Lucca Venitucci (I) – accordeon
Ingar Zach (N) – percussion

The trumpet player Franz Hautzinger, one of the most distinguished experimental musicians of the Austrian scene, has put together an international quartet especially for this concert, which has never performed together in this cast. Isabelle Duthoit is one of them, extending the exploration of her instruments – clarinet and voice – right up to the margins of sound. The Italian accordionist and multi-instrumentalist Luca Venitucci has developed his experimental playing as a member of some prestigious ensembles (Ossatura, Zeitkratzer, Fanfarara) and in cooperating with various forefathers of improvisational music (such as Peter Kowald, Butch Morris, Keith Rowe). Ingar Zach is considered one of Norway’s leading percussionists and improvisers, known for the wide range of sounds he is using and for his dynamic way of playing.

Following this concert, Franz Hautzinger will be presenting a special workshop on June 15 – 17 at the exploratorium.
