Discography

biography

Eva-Maria Karbacher, born in Zürich in 1992, is a saxophone player and improviser working in the fields of free improvisation, experimental music and contemporary music.

Her music explores all the different sound possibilities of the saxophone and combines them with melodic elements. Improvisation and a curiosity for finding new sounds is at the core of her musical work.

Eva-Maria Karbacher performs all over Europe as a solo improviser as well as in various formations and ensembles, such as the Duo “Karbacher-Vryzas” (with Dimos Vrzyzas, violin) or the Duo “Around the Corner” (with Victor Barcelo, percussion).

She is part of the KlangBang Collective which organises a monthly concert series for free improvised music in Basel.

Eva-Maria Karbacher studied saxophone and music pedagogy at the Hochschule Luzern in the saxophone class of Sascha Armbruster and Beat Hofstetter as well as in Berlin at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler. Later on she deepened her abilities as an improviser at sthe Musikakademie Basel with a Master of Arts in Specialised Musical Performance in the improvisation class of Alfred Zimmerlin and Fred Frith.

Eva-Maria Karbacher is currently based in Basel, Switzerland.
