Born at the 5th of November in 1977 in Graz, Austria Georg Gratzer studied Jazzsaxophone and flute at the University for Arts in Graz. After graduation he studied in New York with Robert Dick and Ned Rothenderg and moved to London to perform with free improvisers and to compose contemporary soundtracks for theatre performances.
He has been widening his playing style by studying indian music and different flutes from China and South America and by exploring extended woodwind techniques to create entirely new sounds.
Georg brings all these elements from all over the musical world to his improvisations and compositions.
He performed with various groups like Beefolk, Georg Gratzer & Amridan, georg&thomas – carysfortstories, Nenad Vasilic Balkan Band, Timna Brauer and the persian virtuoso Madjid Derakshani at many Jazz- and Worldmusicfestivals for example in Beijing, Hongkong, London, Sarajevo, Belgrade, Vienna, Salzburg, Odessa, Berlin or Paris.
