In the Abstract Monarchy Duo project the well-known Austrian trumpet player Franz Hautzinger pulled together with the Hungarian viola player and intermedia experimentalist Zsolt Sőrés to discover, in the rich structured soundscapes, the unexplored corners of intimate sound processes. In their music the sense of off-hand improvisation and real time composing with prudent minimalist and ambient aesthetics are fusing. Non-conventional use of traditional instruments and application of new technologies in unusual way activate a spontaneous experience on both subconscious and ritual levels.
