Gilda Razani

theremin /  soma pipe electronic wind instrument / saxophone/ aerophone

Gilda Razani is one of the few professional theremin players. She is part of vocal group the Manhattan Transfer’s Grammy-nominated new recording ‚Fifty‘.
Aside from her classical playing style, she goes in her compositions and improvisations to the contemporary boarders of her instrument. With electronic effects, she generates contemporary E-Guitar-like sounds in brute hard-rock aesthetics next to ecstatic Sinus sound creations, spherical choirs and tenderest noise minimalisms.
Gilda has a master’s degree in Saxophone.

Hans Wanning

piano  / synthesizers/ electronics

Hans Wanning has a master’s degree in Jazzpiano and Classical Composition Hilversum/NL.
He likes to improvise, to compose, to produce a wide stylistic range of modern music, using his piano, many synths and electronic devices in a very personal way.
