Growing up in a small mountain village in Switzerland, embedded in a musical environment, the pianist Gisela Horat started her career with a traditional classic piano education. She developed over this period the desire to write and play her own compositions.

Gisela Horat's compositions are inspired by her own experiences and impressions. Through improvisation from the moment and mutual impulses, the music sounds different each time, oscillates between tranquillity and dynamics and moves somewhere between pop, jazz and minimal music. But the music tells always stories, creates moods and excitement and leaves the audience room for his own pictures.

Apart from the influences of Eric Satie, Bill Evans, Enrico Pieranunzi, Esbjörn Svensson and Sylvie Courvoisier, the classical background of Gisela is also noticeable. This gives a harmonic frame to the sounds pictorial and lyrical playing and thus appealing to an audience that normally has no access to jazz music.
