“Das ganze Doppelalbum” is the first solo release of Gigi Gratt aka Gigaldi. Since 2005 Gratt plays in intense bands like the improvisation trio Nirwakia with Wolf Lobo Eisberg and Martin ‘Hipi’ Hiptmair. At the same time he started with Bernhard Breuer (Elektro Guzzi) the band Tumido. But Gratt also created Gigi’s Gogos, a 13 piece orchestra built around improvisation conducted by Gigi. This project transferred into the GIS Orchestra, an Upper Austrian improvisation orchestra, with up to 30 musicians (organised in collaboration with Waschaecht Wels (Unlimited Festival). Gratt comes from Ottensheim, he is one of the key pillars of Ottensheim Open Air and organises shows for KOMA, a culture association doing shows at changing spaces. He is playing E-Guitar in the post-math-rock quartet of NI, next to BRAAZ a quartet between Jazz and Noiserock, with a lot of space for improvisation. These days Gratt is also playing at DRUMSKI a collective working in a traditional way with (upper-)austrian proverbs. And if he is not involved in new projects, his next other band is ROMANOVSTRA working in a new way with hungarian proverbs.
