“Colorful dew, a waltz in September rain, glittering November fog, a song of thanksgiving to Esbjörn Svensson, bluesy sleepy grumbling in the morning …
Own compositions full of shimmering timbres and emotional landscapes, from floating melody clouds to bubbling, earthy tones of a siren to groovy, rocky invokations.”

“”When the time is transformed into a different form that may be through music. Thanks for the performance!” !” (audience reaction)

“I love free improvisation – I love the surprise, being open with curiosity about what wants to be at the moment. That is exactly what applies to babies and small children, because they are created by curiosity at the moment.” (Mara Kolibri)

Babies and toddlers are invited to teach improvisation, and everyone who wants to immerse themselves in this magic again.

Pop Up Concerts – free improvisation

Foto: Martin Draxler

… qualitative unique, in places that did not know that they are chosen for concerts … a merging of different systems that tread in unexpected interrelationships … different functional PLACES, invited MUSICIANS who are open to the not-defined, LISTENERS who are curious to discover new spaces of Vienna … to flow into a SINGULARITY, to which musicians open up as a medium for the moment, in order that it materializes by free improvisation …

VIO – Vienna Improvisers Orchestra

conducted instant composing


The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra focuses on conducted instant composition, a specific form of experimental composition and complex improvised music. Within an oscillating process musicians and conductor create ad hoc compositions, mediated by a vocabulary of hand-sign conducting. The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra is Austria’s first orchestra dedicated to this method since 2004 which has been developed in variety by a few European improvising orchestras within the last 15-20 years, mostly referring to Lawrence D. Butch Morris’ work on ‘conductions’.
Performing in ever changing line-ups the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra unifies singers and musicians out of acoustic and electro-acoustic improvised music, contemporary composed music, jazz and eminent new music ensembles. Since its beginning, the possible processes of merging sound and recitation, their vice versa influence, the metamorphosis of sound- and word-pictures a.o. phenomenons arising, were an additional beam of the VIO’s poetic presence, hence the VIO is collaborating with splendid writers in experimental poetry. The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra works within a wide range of projects a.o. collaborating with choir, multi lingual or within interdisciplinary contexts. The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra was launched by Michael Fischer in 2004.

MaKi – free improvisation

Foto: Mara Kolibri

Music is life – music is communication: What happens when Mara and Lukas go on a stage to play a concert free of repertoire and prescription? It is inevitably reduced to what is the quintessence of musical coexistence: listening, feeling, processing and experiencing.
Tension is definitely guaranteed here, because of its unique, perhaps also never-perceived sounds, up to catchy melodic melodies, everything is contained in this explosive and emotional combination.

Mara Kolibri & Clemens Wabra

Charming, cheeky interpretations of jazz, pop, and rock songs with lots of improvisations

Mara Kolibri – voice
Clemens Wabra – guitar

“One thing I noticed at my concerts was that there are singers who live for singing, who, as in jazz, see songs as raw material with which they can work, which they can transform, from which they can expose what is important for them, what they want to express – and they make these songs their own. Mara Kolibri is – so far as I know her so far – such a singer. Her enthusiasm and joy in the music are catching. In combination with the exceptional guitarist Clemens Wabra she sings songs from Coldplay, Sting or Zaz. But singing is almost too little said, she expands them, improvises to it, she lives them. “” (Georg Cizek-Graf)
