Franz Hautzinger

Viennese Franz Hautzinger is one of the most distinguished experimental musicians on the Austrian scene, having worked with many big names of the international avant-garde, from Elliott Sharp and John Cale to Christian Fennesz and Keiji Haino.Hautzinger has developed his quarter-tone trumpet into an expressive tool of a completely new kind, from which he elicits bizarre sounds and noises. In his solo performance he creates the most adventurous soundscapes, which sound more like electronic music than trumpet, and are full of interesting sounds.
