1977

Premier Orchestre d’Art de Vienne

Vienna Art Orchestra founded by rüegg, Puschnig and Schabata... without intentions, out of pure enjoyment and a little craziness... inspired by the creativity of the Viennese underground. First concert in the Jazz-Gitti Club, Vienna. Street concerts, parties, happenings. Concert for four trees, fire works, the soldier’s book, half-militant children and orchestra.

1978

Jessas na

Multimedia concerts in Vienna with 22 performing artists including two writers (Joe Berger, Otto Kobalek), and two dancers. Performance at the first Saalfelden Jazz Festival with a local 45 piece brass band. During the first tour, the band is torn apart by disagreements and breaks up before finishing the tour. Recording of the single "Jessas na" (re-issued in 1992).

Through some changes in its membership, the very promising, and perhaps slightly chaotic spontaneity of this young ensemble has mellowed...(Salzburger Nachrichten)
