Student Portrait George Marti

George Marti is studying jazz and pop on the MA Music Pedagogy. The trombonist finds inspiration in dense and pulsating city atmospheres.


Giulia Adagazza: What inspires you?
George Marti: A dense and pulsating city atmosphere: the sound, the energy and the tension transfer themselves onto me. I filter out tone sequences, interruptions and the unexpected and store them. Such moments of pausing and immersing myself leave strong traces in me. In my music I take them up again and interpret them.

What have you got planned after graduation?
I would like to implement interdisciplinary projects with artists and musicians in a variety of ways. I see myself as a musician, educator, sound and improvisation coach or workshop leader. Besides, I would like to work in a music bar, library or art house in order to gain further inspiration for projects.
