Mia Zabelka - Electric Violin, Voice, Live-Electronics
Johannes Frisch - Double Bass, Electric Bass

The mia zabelka trio was founded in 2009. Austrian violin adventurist Mia Zabelka's mission is to expand the capabilities, sound, scope, performance and experience of the Violin to levels never before attempted, seen or heard.
She has developed a unique language based on the de- and reconstruction of the violin's sonic possibilities, expanding the instrument using live electronic effects and innovative performance techniques.
The violin, voice and her own body transform into sound bodies which are at once organic and primal, screaming, lyrical, composed and explosive.
She has given concerts and performances throughout Europe, America and the former USSR and played with David Moss, John Zorn, Fred Frith, Peter Kowald, Phil Wachsman, Franz Hautzinger, Eliott Sharp, Martin Siewert, Joelle Leandre, amongst others. She is a three time winner of the International Prix Ars Electronica.
