Live musical act: MONTH OF SUNDAYS

month of sundays since being founded in Vienna in 2013, has pursued the goal of creating contemporary chamber music. Their songs, at the intersection of acoustic and electronic aesthetics, have rich detail and exhibit well-considered coordination of musical content and form. The group’s arc touches upon minimal music, post-rock and jazz. In spring 2015 they released their debut album and since then have received numerous positive reviews. This was followed by many concerts and invitations to renowned festivals in Austria and abroad. Currently the four musicians are working on their second studio album, which has the working title “Time and Ruins.”

month of sundays are Alexander Kranabetter (horns), Philipp Harnisch (alto saxophone), Ivo Fina (guitar) and Johannes Wakolbinger (drums).
