Michael Vochezer hails from the Chiemgau area in Southern Bavaria. Sind the mid-1990's he is active as guitarist, composer, arranger and guitar teacher, and has correspondingly always been inquisitive about the technical side of the electric guitar, taking a particular interest in the point-of-view of the user.
Whether it's gypsy-jazz, fusion (where he contributes his own compositions), big band, funk, soul or blues – it is the great flexibility of the guitar that fascinates Michael. Improvisation in Jazz and Blues, and cool grooves always provide the basis. Besides various projects featuring original compositions and arrangements such as Cafe Caravan (Gypsy Jazz Quartett), Groove Galaxy (Fusion Jazz), Travels (original compositions featuring vocals, vibes and guitar) and treeo (Michael Jackson's music arranged for vocals and two acoustic guitars), Michael regularly plays with Blue Bay Music (Party), Club Society (Funk & Soul Party), Norisha, Swing Summit (Rat Pack Big Band Sound), Tanzbar (Party), and as studio musician (for BR, ZDF, and Eberhard Schoener, amongst many others). He also finds time for collaborations with other artists in a wide variety of settings, such as for example once a year with the Söhne Traunreuts.
In 2016, and based on a unique concept, Michael started his own guitar academy together with his partner Enrico Coromines: supergain.de
Michael has studied performance (with Mick Goodrick, Joe Lovano, Hal Crook and Ed Tomassi, among others) and jazz composition (with Greg Hopkins, Phil Wilson and Ted Pease, among others) at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, USA, and graduated with „summa cum laude“-honors in 2004.
Michael lives in Munich, Germany. He is married and has two children.
Until 1991 studies in Electric Engineering at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. From then Software Engineer in industrial process-automation, mobile communications, and end-user software.
Musical beginnings as schoolboy with classical guitar - soon to be replaced by an electric one. Member of various garage bands, contributor to amateur Musical productions, and since 1992 member of a hobby rock band performing original compositions. On the side: tinkering with electronics of and for electric guitars. Participation in a seminar by Manfred Zollner in 2014, and since then participation in all GITEC activities and meetings.
