Concert Jazz, Jodlen and Classical with Trio Brix Trix
Trio BRIX TRIX
Christine Grassmann (tuba, bass trumpet, vocals, etc.) Markus Gruber (guitar) Andreas Reiter (trombone, bass trumpet, didgeridoo etc.) The trio Brix Trix found itself in spring 2020 and already arouses curiosity with its extraordinary cast. The three musicians come from very different directions – this is also reflected in the diversity of their pieces: musical travelers "from one corner to another", with their own compositions and daring arrangements.
The multi-instrumentalist Christine Graßmann has always taken new musical paths. She dealt intensively with the sound worlds of various recorders, piano, flute and guitar and then devoted herself to percussion for several years (training with Walter Graf and Charly Fischer, collaboration with the Symphonic Wind Orchestra Tyrol). Then another departure, via the trombone (lessons with Andreas Reiter and Prof. Leonhard Paul) and the bass trumpet, she finally found the tuba with a detour via the double bass. There, under the wing of Prof. Andreas Martin Hofmeir, she landed very well.
Christine Grassmann has worked for the top-class Brigs Bigs Band and the Almrauschmusi. She plays with different instruments in formations such as the big band St. Johann or the Koasa Tanzlmusig, in singing groups, in the brass band Fröschl Hall, and in between makes excursions into her beloved yodelling world.
Markus Gruber's path is similarly colourful, especially when it comes to music styles. He learned guitar from Joachim Weissbacher (folk music), then expanded his repertoire with Erika Santek-Pircher (classical guitar). From 1997 to 1999 he immersed himself in the Brazilian guitar with Ahmed El-Salamouny. He then studied jazz guitar with Martin Nitsch.
Numerous performances in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Poland, Russia and Brazil with Round Up Company, Die Zuagroastn, Small Talk, Albert Rigotti Big Band, Gregor Glanz Big Band and
others.Markus Gruber works full-time as a music teacher at the Landesmusikschule Brixental. He is also the trio's sound engineer, who experiments with dedication and sets beautiful videos to music.
Andreas Reiter studied trombone and I(G)P with Prof. Horst Küblböck at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. He also studied for two years at the Jazz Conservatory in Vienna with Erich Kleinschuster and completed the jazz course at the Tyrolean State Conservatory in Innsbruck in 2001.
Since 1993, Andreas Reiter has been working full-time as a music teacher at the Landesmusikschule Brixental. In 2008 his first CD "Mars Mission" was released. In 2019 he composed a piece for the Tyrolean Ensemble for New Music (TENM) entitled "Die Lebendigkeit in der Instabilität", which was premiered as part of the Zeitimpuls 19 festival in Innsbruck.
Projects: TENM, Jazzorchester Tirol, work at the Tiroler Landestheater, Outreach Orchester, Tricky Bridges, Smalltalk, Al Monte & Friends. Since 2020 he has been composing for the newly founded Trio Brix Trix and arranging pieces for this unusual line-up.
