descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Franz Hautzinger (quartertone trumpet), Ahiko Okura (reeds) and Tetuzi Akiyama (tape delayed electric guitar) have a recording from 2004, from Tokyo and compared to the previous one, this is a more 'relaxed' work. All instruments sound at times like they are supposed to. We hear a guitar! We hear wind instruments. But this trio cleverly combines that more or less old fashioned way of improvising with some of the 'newer' techniques to treat instruments as objects that are capable of producing any kind of sound. For some reason or the other which I am not exactly can point out, this all sounds a bit more easy to access than the Doneda et al release. Not just high pitched sounds, shrieking and terrifying the objects, but with some more deeper end towards the low end sounds. Both of these discs require ones full attention, but both of them are highly rewarding musical improvisations."-Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly


Artist Biographies:

"Detours often lead to more thrilling goals because they open up new perspectives. Franz Hautzinger has taken long and bendy detours and turned to many dead ends, he has spent years without instrumental activity and has made a hopeful new start. All this, those victories and defeats, this "History from the Total Crash to 'Emergency Individualism'", as he himself described it, made Franz Hautzinger the highly profiled musical personality that he is today.

Born on March 11, 1963 in Seewinkel, Burgenland, a Hannibal Marvin Peterson concert at Jazzgalerie Nickelsdorf was the young trumpeter's "awakening experience". He studied at the Jazz department of today's Art University in Graz from 1981 to 1983 until lip palsy forced him to take a six year total break from trumpeting. After moving to Vienna in 1986 he started in 1989 to explore the trumpet in his very own and un-academic way. He became attached to the circles around Christoph Cech and Christian Mühlbacher, played in the Big Band "Nouvelle Cuisine" and the octet "Striped Roses"; the CD "Zong of se Boboolink", which he recorded with saxophonist Helge Hinteregger and which was influenced by sampler collages was the first personal CD statement. His 10 month stay in London provided new ideas and contacts, amongst others Kenny Wheeler, Henry Lowther, John Russel, and Steve Noble. Hautzinger assimilated the stimuli in very different ways: in "Regenorchester" ("Rain Orchestra") with its changing instrumentation, in the quartet with Helge Hinteregger, Oren Marshall and Steve Noble as well as in the trio "Speakers' Corner" with guitarist Martin Siewert and drummer Wolfgang Reisinger.

The conscious decision to avoid electronic sound sources but to still comprehend the development of digital music on the trumpet - the quarter tone trumpet purchased in 1997 - were decisive stages for the creation of Franz Hautzinger's sensational solo trumpet CD "Gomberg" (2000) on which he presented this new until then unheard cosmos of sound that he had developed on his instrument. Hautzinger positioned himself with "Gomberg" at the front line of the international improvisation avant-garde; collaborations and CD records with Derek Bailey, the "AMM" veterans Keith Rowe and John Tilbury as well as Axel Dörner, Christian Fennesz or Otomo Yoshihide, and Sachiko M followed. The step into the world of decelerated sound microscopy and from 2003 on the re-discovery of musical sensualism, the confrontation of his trumpet sounds with groove and tunes ("Regenorchester XI" and XII) can be considered as important stages in his development. Franz Hautzinger teaches at the Vienna Music University since 1989, is a member of the Berliner Ensemble "Zeitkratzer" since 1999 and received comissions from Klangforum Vienna amongst others. He is a globetrotter whose unmistakeable musical signature is known from Vienna to Berlin, London to Beirut, or in Tokyo, New York, and Chicago. Franz Hautzinger has shown that even in times where postmodernism is history an instrument can still be reinvented."-(Andreas Felber, translated by Astrid Donaubauer)

"Tetuzi Akiyama (Akiyama Tetsuji) (born 13 April 1964) is a Japanese guitarist, violinist, and instrument-maker. Akiyama formed the improvisation group Madhar in 1987, and the classical ensemble Hikyo String Quintet in 1994 (which also included Taku Sugimoto on cello). In 1995, Akiyama and Sugimoto formed a guitar duo, and played at venues in New York City, Chicago, and Detroit. During this time, Akiyama was also a member of Keiji Haino's Nijiumu outfit. Akiyama also formed Sutekina Tea Time (a duo with Takashi Matsuoka) and Mongoose (a trio with Taku Sugimoto and Utah Kawasaki).

In 1998 Akiyama began organising a monthly concert series, The Improvisation Meeting, with Toshimaru Nakamura. In December 2006 he began a regular duo with Hervé Boghossian (France), they toured in Europe (France, Portugal, Switzerland, England) several times in 2007 (in May, October & December) & also played in Tokyo during Hervé Boghossian Japanese tour in August/September 2008. In 2009 he worked with David Sylvian."
