Gábor Hartyáni (Cello)

Gábor Hartyáni (1987) plays the cello since he was 7. He learnt to play in the music school of his hometown, Gödöllő, Hungary. While he was playing and touring with the Youth String Orchestra of Gödöllő and the Colla Parte Consort renaissance ensemble he also got in contact with improvisation 15 years ago. Since then his musical attention shifted toward instant composition, jazz, experimental, noise, contemporary, world, electronic, psychedelic, urban and free music. Therefore he did not continue his musical studies on a higher level of institutional classical education, instead he learnt by practice and experimenting, by playing, working with and attending workshops, masterclasses and private lessons of various musicians, dancers and choreographers including Trilok Gurtu, Ernst Reijseger, Tristan Honsinger, Giovanni Sollima, Seijiro Murayama, Eddie Prevost, Katie Duck, Wilbert de Joode, Mary Oliver, Viktor Tóth, Rita Góbi, Zoltán Grecsó, Anne Suurendonk, Tashi Iwaoka, Carlos LIbedinsky.

In Hungary he played with the alternative hardfolkrock-punkblues band, Mi az ábra?, the experimental/free/noise project, m o n o f o g and the improvisational dance theater, Willany Leó.

After playing and creating for two and a half years in Amsterdam, he moved to Berlin in early 2017 to expand his artistic scope and immerse in the cultural capital’s diverse scenes. Besides working on his solo projects he is an active member and Berlin director of the multidisciplinary Young Blood Initiative. He is the cellist and founder of the world fusion collective Khayâl and the experimental free fusion duo Baker Boys. He plays with singer-songwriter Rasha Nahas and Alice Rose and collaborates with various dancers and musicians in Berlin, Amsterdam and Budapest.

Gábor keeps on (re)searching, observing and experimenting as part of his commitment to constant development.
