INFOBOXGenre(s): Jazz/Improvised Music
From: Carinthia, Austria
There are musicians and artists who never conform to any type of categorization and with their full body of work vehemently oppose any kind of expectation imposed on them. One of these intrepid musicians is Agnes Heginger, who without doubt belongs in this category of artist. Looking over the multitude and diversity of projects that she has been involved in over the years, it is clear that since her early years as a budding talent in Vienna, she has been one of the most diverse artists in all of Austria. She has shown throughout her career that she can have success within a range of genres and styles, and in a wide variety of musical contexts. Whether it be Jazz, traditional folks music, electronic, experimental, pop or with pure improvisation, Heginger has shown that she excels in almost an musical context, and isn’t afraid to show her chameleon-like ability to fit harmoniously into challenging and new musical situations.
