"Ochotona Calls" ist Eva-Maria Karbachers erstes Soloalbum und bietet einen Einblick in ihre musikalische Welt in Form von drei frei improvisierten Sopransaxophonsolos.
Der Albumtitel bezieht sich auf das kleine Säugetier Ochotona, das in den Bergen von Nordamerika und Asien lebt und dessen Rufe als Warn- und Erkennungssignale dienen. Ähnlich lebendig und flink wie das kleine Tier, präsentiert sich auch Karbachers Musik, die die Hörer:innen auf eine Reise durch vielschichtige sich stets wandelnde Klanglandschaften mitnimmt.
Die Aufnahmen dokumentieren Karbachers musikalische Entwicklung über die letzten Jahre hinweg und offenbaren ihre Leidenschaft als Saxophonistin und Improvisatorin. Durch Neugierde und Experimentierfreude hat sie einen einzigartigen Stil entwickelt, der technische Präzision mit kreativem Ausdruck verbindet. Die Solos auf dem Album "Ochotona Calls" sind sowohl intim als auch kraftvoll und zeigen Karbachers Fähigkeit, das Sopransaxophon als Ausdrucksmittel in seiner ganzen Bandbreite zu nutzen.
"Ochotona Calls" offenbart die unterschiedlichen Facetten von Karbachers Musik und Kreativität und ist ein beeindruckendes Zeugnis ihrer Improvisationskunst.

"Ochotona Calls" is Eva-Maria Karbacher's first solo album and offers an insight into her musical world through three freely improvised soprano saxophone solos.
The album title refers to the small mammal Ochotona, which lives in the mountains of North America and Asia and uses its calls as warning and recognition signals. Similar to the lively and agile nature of the small animal, Karbacher's music takes listeners on a journey through multi-layered and ever-changing soundscapes.
The recordings document Karbacher's musical development over the past years and reveal her passion as a saxophone player and improviser. Through curiosity and eagerness to experiment, she has developed a unique style that combines technical precision with creative expression. The solos on the album "Ochotona Calls" are both intimate and powerful and show Karbacher's ability to use the soprano saxophone as a means of expression in its full range.
"Ochotona Calls" reveals the various facets of Karbacher's music and creativity and is an impressive testimony to her improvisational artistry.
