Franz Hackl's IDO Quartet
Artist DescriptionIDO stands for Idiomo di Omni and means dialect for everybody.
An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not predictable from the usual meanings of its constituent elements.
Omni means a combining form meaning “all.
So a combination of unusual and unlikely elements, in this case musical, making up an unpredictable whole.
Franz Hackl merges “Tyrolean Folktunes “ the musical dialect he grew up with , with the music and sounds of New York, the town he calls home for almost 20 years. Many people think that music is an universal language. But music has as many dialects as the human language. To open up and further develop your own musical dialect elevates this music and presents it on an international level. It’s both very personal and open to influences from all over the world.
Each bandmember has all the artistic freedom they need to contribute equally to the same vision. To play music which stays close to our musical truth and creating a very unique band sound at the same time.
