(eventuell.human – CH)
The swiss duo eventuell. was founded in 2015 by Manuela Villiger and Vera Wahl. These young musicians passionately dedicate themselves to contemporary music and its adequate performance. As an open-minded and experimental duo, eventuell.‘s performances are not limited to saxophone works, but to any kind of art performance including light and video staging. In addition to the auditive dimension, the duo is seeking to provide a further visual dimension to its audience and create a visual space to the musical performance.
eventuell. is pursuing the making of a unique statement through its performances. The young musicians not only deal intensively with the questions of their themes but also try to confront the audience with complex questions about society and look for personal answers to the questions raised. Besides writing their own pieces, the performers collaborate closely with associate artists and renowned composers on new works and ideas. Throughout the creating process of a new work the ensemble gathers new impulses from other artists and has the chance to premier a multitude of new works by composers such as Felix Baumann, Jorge Sanchez-Chiong, Emilio Guim or Christian Strinning. In May 2019, the duo intensifies in “eventuell.connected” its collaboration with promising young composers and premiers a whole program written by Danish composer Loïc Destremau and Austrian composer Julian Siffert. Eventhough a intensive collaboration and cooperation is intented during the creation process, eventuell. clearly takes the executive part in this program. Both instrumentalists shared their musical education studying together music pedagogy in Lucerne (Switzerland) with Beat Hofstetter and Sascha Armbruster and later finishing their Master of Arts in Music Performance at the Zurich University of Arts in the class of Lars Mlekusch. The canton of Solothurn granted them a promotion award to enhance their musical development as an ensemble.
