First off, my family and I formed the band “Lacherstorfer Soatnkråtzer” – this roughly translates as “Lacherstorfer String-Scratchers” – and the name was not too far-fetched, I’m afraid. When I finally came to Vienna in 2003 to study music education, psychology, and philosophy, my musical visions started to materialise more and more: Retrieve long-forgotten traditional tunes and incorporate them in my own music, discover rare gems from all over the world and become familiar with them. Find people who know things I don’t know, so I know a bit more afterwards. Play music with people and create small worlds.
After some time of studying people, music , and life itself, a new passion has joined the aforementioned: improvisation. Because it gets you so very close – closer to yourself, closer to the people you play for, closer to the people you play with.
