"Both Giesriegl and Gratkowski are responsible for the sound in the gearbox. It deals with an extreme range of vocalisms, which are often composed of elements of spoken language, which are part of the sound ensemble. He draws from an almost inexhaustible palette of aesthetic eruptions, from which he spontaneously chooses the appropriate colors."-Andreas Fellinger, freistil


Artist Biographies

"Annette Giesriegl was born 1966 in Innsbruck, Austria and lives since 1990 in Graz, Austria. She is a vocalist who crosses boundaries, whose education started in jazz music. She studied jazz singing at the University of Music and Dramatic Arts in Graz with American vocalists Mark Murphy, Jay Clayton, Sheila Jordan and Andy Bey, during which time she placed particular emphasis on the study of improvisation, finished in 1997.She has spent years exploring the sonic range and potential of the voice and finds musical expression for the explorations in free improvisation.

She has been engaged in studies of overtone singing, throat singing and the work of vocalists such as Meredith Monk, Bobby Mc Ferrin and Sainkho Namtchylak, and has taken part in workshops with the French Bassist Joelle Leandre, Eddie Prevost from AMN and the vocalist Maggie Nichols and spent months in London studying Indian music with an emphasis on Indian vocal techniques.

She performs since over 15 years regularly in the free music scene in London and gigs with musicians such as Eddie Prevost, John Edwards, Veryan Weston, Steve Beresford, Alison Blunt, David Leahy, Rowland Sutherland and the radical free improvisation band: Primal Fruitcake.

She also uses electronics since the early 1990ies to heighten the expansion and range of vocal sound in her free improvisations.

Her work with Mia Zabelka, the extreme-violinist from Vienna, on a project called "ZOOM". Giesriegl does not "sing" a single tone on these recordings, but rather explores the sound perspectives of her "Stimmlos - Stimme" ("soundless - voice") and of her "soundful - voice". She is an explorer of vocal sound and expands her sonic spectrum using of electronics.

She furthermore developed the concert programme "Two Voices" together with Jay Clayton (NY) - who is one of the most important influences of Giesriegl - where the two singers create an entire "Free Jazz Vocal Ensemble" using electronic effects.

Her one and - so far - only JazzCD: Hear I Am, Giesriegl produced in 2003 with her Band Annett4tett: Stefan Heckel on Piano, Karl Sayer on Double Bass and Ingrid Oberkanins on Percussion

One of her projects is the duet Vocal Chordestra with the austrian percussionist and drummer Franz Schmuck, best known for his work with the ensemble "Broadlahn". On the CD "Free Ethno!" (EX 766-2), released in 2006, Giesriegl and Schmuck explore ethnic singing styles from all over the world, interweaving them with vocal sounds, electronics and percussion.

A CD with instant compositions was released in 2008 with the Vienna Improvisers String Trio (VIST AG) featuring Giesriegl on voice and electronics. In 2008 Giesriegl also had the joy to perform with Pierre Dorge´s New Jungle Orchestra (DK) with Performances in Kopenhagen and Vienna.

Giesriegl's musical boundaries also extend into the realms of contemporary music, as can be seen in her work with the tone poet Gerhard Rühm (Cologne/Vienna)....about Indian music...

2008 and 2009 Giesriegl was also invited to work with classical indian musicians from the Bhavan Center London (UK), where they performed together with her and the austrian musicians Stefan Heckel and Franz Schmuck compositions by Heckel, Schmuck and herself.

Her long termed collaboration with UK composer Veryan Weston led 2010 to a project called: Vociferous Choir, performing Westons´s composition Tessellations II for 9 singers, with performances in Austria and the UK and the piece was recorded by BBC London and released as a CD by EMANEM 2011.

Since 2011 Giesriegl also takes part in a fusion project with fantastic austrian composer Denovaire, where she performes in a 14 musicians orchestra the piece "CHEST" as the singer and the Indian harmonium player. She learned to play the Indian Harmonium during her studies of Indian classical Music in 2003 in London and uses/used it in various settings like with Cordula Boesze on Theremin at the Interpenetration Festival in Graz 2009, or with the New Jungle Orchestra 2008.

Over the years Giesriegl took and takes part in the London Improvisers Orchestra, The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra, The GIS Orchestra (A), and she is one founder and organiser of the Styrian Improvisers Orchestra, which exists since April 2012 and performs regularly in Graz. Giesriegl developed her skills of conducting Improvisers Orchestras since many years.

Inspired by Maggie Nichols the "Gathering" in London, Giesriegl founded in 2011 together with german dancer Monika Schabus a Gathering in Austria near Graz, where musicians and dancers take part in a monthly evening experiencing the magic of Free Improvisation.

Her latest projects are TRIO REDOX with Katharina Klement (p), Kaja Farszky (marimba) - CD released in 2017 (CS459); the BARCODE QUARTET with Elisabeth Harnik (p), Alison Blunt (v), Josef Klammer (dr) - CD released 2012 (SLAMCD288), with a concert tour in 2013 in Australia and New Zealand ( Soundout Festival 2013) and Brasil in 2015, CD released on CDBaby: (Live in Brasil); and has released the CD "puzzling" in May 2014 at AUT records, which presents the work of her Duo Project with Claudia Cervenca (A) called PATCHWORK VOICES.

Since 2012 Giesriegl is a member of the leading team of V:NM Graz, Association for promotion and dissemination of New Music, based in Graz, organising a festival every second year: www.vnm.mur.at

In addition to the single tube instruments (saxophones and clarinets), he studied the cornet. In addition to his sound research, he also worked as a director, performer, musician and composer for various theater productions. In the following years he performed with solo and duo projects at new music festivals (Musica Viva, Klangaktionen, etc ...), jazz, experimental music, among others. This led to collaborations with musicians like Hubert Bergmann, Gerry Hemingway, Eddie Prevost, Sebi Tramontana, Georg Wissel, John Russell, Blaise Siwula, Frank Gratkowski, Hans Koch, Urs Leimgruber, Elisabeth Harnik, Katharina Weber and Frank Paul Schubert. In addition to his activities in solid cast he initiated in Munich a series of concerts to free improvisation in ad hoc to test instrumentation."
