Andreas Heuser

Andreas Heuser is an autodidact. After his years as a beginner followed a classical and jazz guitar studies and many years of practical work with non-european (especially oriental) music. These stations are the most important of his musical career that have shaped both – his compositions and his playing technique.

He is a unique composer, a skilful player and improviser who has a wide range of expression and performance techniques.

Impressive is the sound range of his instruments:

Impressive is the tonal richness of 6- and 10-strings classical guitar, steel strings with 6 and 8 strings, requinto (Quint Guitar), electric guitar, Glissentar and electric violin are the tools of this musician.

The extra bass strings of the 8- and 10- strings and the high position of requinto expand the familiar sound spectrum and open Andreas Heuser new compositional and playing techniques that he knows how to use.

Andreas Heuser is active as a soloist and in various  intercultural ensembles. Especially with his Transorient-Orchestra he has gained an international recognition.

Andreas Heuser-Bora/Perpetual Mobile/Arabesque Variations

“… Andreas is a stylistic wanderer same as an ethnic, a cross rider who manages admirably to filter out from the multicultural cacophony in his fine ears what promises new aesthetic and musical orders…”

Alexander Schmitz- Jazzpodium September 2006

“Andreas Heuser is one of our most important ‘German’ world musicians, strange as this phrase may sound. He has made the musical meeting with the Orient to the matter of the heart like no other.. ”
