Ensemble Melo X

General Information

Year of Foundation:  1991

The saxophone quartet melo X was founded in 1991 at the Viennese University for Music and Performing Arts by Arne Marsel (soprano saxophone), Nicole Marsel (alto), Gabriele Riegler (tenor) and Herbert Mraz (baritone). The four musicians not only play with a variety of musical styles, but also integrate electronic music as an autonomous instrument within the acoustic setting of a saxophone quartet. This last aspect is particularly important for this ensemble in its quest to find new ways of musical expression and combine music with non-musical elements like language, movement, image, light, etc.
