"For me, music is essentially openness towards audiences, fellow musicians and composers - but also openness towards untrodden paths, artistic development, and personal growth."
Chai Min Werner, discovered the alphorn already during her childhood, hearing how it suffused the Swiss mountains with its sound. At first, she played traditional music under the aegis of the Swiss alphornist and composer Theo Mutti. This sound led her from tradition to improvisation and classical music. Since 2011 she has been playing in classical ensembles with flute, harp, guitar, piano, organ, the Trio Avance and as a soloist with orchestra. She was a guest at the International Bach Academy of Stuttgart, the Hohenlohe Cultural Summer, the chamber concerts of the Baden-Baden Philharmonie and at DAS FEST in Karlsruhe. Concert tours have taken her to Switzerland,  the Netherlands, to Austria and Georgia. International composers such as Hans-Jürg Sommer, Siegmund Schmidt and Pascal Jugy have written new works especially for her. Since 2015, Chai Min Werner has been exploring the sonic possibilities of the Tamtam Gong by performing as a soloist as well as teaching and leading gong seminars."The sound that cannot be stopped, that touches the emotions on all levels, connecting everything - allowing the musician, public and the creation to become one - that is what inspires me in music."
Andreas Hiller, 10string guitar, graduated from Trossingen and Bern with a soloist’s diploma. After graduation he expanded his repertoire by excursions into jazz, live electronic, the music of the eastern hemisphere and the music of Latin America. Today he works both, as an adaptioner and arranger, moreover, he gives specialized lectures and offers workshops. From 1990 on, he has played the 10-string guitar with four strings in addition. Being one of the few who seriously explore the musical potential of this instrument, Andreas is in touch with composers all around the world to enlarge the repertoire for it. With Trio Aperto the 10-string guitar serves as an ideal sound base with a gamut getting close to the range of a cello. "Of all arts, music touches me most deeply, bestowing wings on me and carrying me into new dimensions."
