Philipp Kienberger is one of those artistis who always tries to think outside the box. As a bass player (double bass and electric bass), as a composer as well as an organizer of different projects he is always searching for new sound structures, the unconventional and progressive, ideas that cross interdisciplinary and cultural boundaries. Philipp Kienberger has gained a name as a bandleader with projects like LUZID CHAOS and KVIN but he is also a frequently asked bass player in the Austrian music scene. Dealing mainly with music out of the jazz, experimental and contemporary field but also with pop, rock and hip-hop he is regularly playing in well-known venues and on festivals in and outside of Austria.
On stage as well as on record, his aim is always to create a strong and clear musical performance. As a co-leader of the 13-piece collective LITTLE ROSIES KINDERGARTEN he is working on a way to express the freedom of improvisation and contemporary composition in a larger ensemble. With his newest project, /KRY, he is working in an overtly artistically free space in a small formation of three.
