INFOBOXGenre(s): Jazz/Improvised Music
From: Burgenland, Vienna, Austria
Franz Hautzinger is a musician who has never allowed any restrictions to get in the way of his own creativity. Always preserving artistic freedom as the top priority, the trumpeter, composer and improviser continuously creates his own musical world, where the boundaries of styles and genres seem to be obsolete.
As displayed in many of his imposing projects, the highly distinguished musician and composer feels most at home in the overlapping areas of various musical genres, no matter whether jazz, improvisation or electronics, contemporary music, avant-garde or world music. Born in 1963 in Burgenland, the trumpeter consistently tries to bridge the gaps and override stylistic boundaries to create something completely new and extraordinary.
