Free Improvised duo formed in Basel (September 2017).
The duo is based on the love of sound in all its different appearances. Creating a musical language in a communicative-collaborative manner, listening to each other, experimenting with different sounds with no restrictive judgments.
Eva-Maria Karbacher and Dimos Vryzas met during their Performance Master at the Musikakademie in Basel where they studied Free Improvisation with Alfred Zimmerlin and Fred Frith. In these two years the two musicians worked intensively together, founded Karbacher Vryzas Duo and recorded their first album “coexisting” in December 2018.
With Dimos Vryzas currently being based in Athens and Eva-Maria Karbacher living in Basel, the duo profits from the connection and exchange between Greece and Switzerland.
Karbacher/Vryzas Duo shares a common point of view over improvisation (nothing prearranged or anticipated) which allows them to build a unified sound.
Being aware of needs of the moment/sounding, encountering each other in an open field with no paths as yet defined. There is no correct way to listen, except to be present and challenge our habits over again.
Dimos Vryzas is a violinist, improviser, songwriter and composer from Thessaloniki, Greece.
Since some years his focus in music has moved on Free Improvisation. He studied Improvisation with Fred Frith and Alfred Zimmerlin.
With a unique approach that comes out of a comprehensive spectrum of influences, from classical and folk music to rock, noise and ambient music, he is interested in exploring the limits of the instrument, work with the contrast of acoustic/electric sound and find new ways of expression within music.
He has collaborated with many composers, visual artists, directors and dancers in various interdisciplinary projects all over Europe. In the last years, he has been travelling, recording and performing with many great musicians in Greece, Switzerland, Portugal, France, Belgium, Germany and more.
Eva-Maria Karbacher, born in Zurich in 1992, is a saxophone player and improviser working in fields of free improvisation, experimental music and contemporary music.
